Summer School

2024 course

The Writing is designed for students from the first to the penultimate year of high school, and it allows them to get in touch with the script, the cinematographic and television screenwriting world
Thanks to the Writing Summer School, students have the possibility of getting to know the secrets behind serial writing. The course, held by professional screenwriters, aims at realizing the writing of a concept for a tv serie.
From brainstorming to the idea, from basic drafting notions of a professional short bible to the tricks that make one’s own story appealing in the national and international market. Students will have the chance to know the world hidden behind the screen, with a special focus on the importance of teamworking as well as the written and oral presentation of their own project.

Furthermore, by the end of the week, it will be possible to take the conclusive test that starts the earlier admission path in Luiss, identical to the Orientation 3 students.
