Dramatic writing is storytelling at its most elemental. Writers learn the crafts of playwriting and screenwriting and create scripts for live performance, film, television, animation and more. Before the rise of the first curtain, before the first fade-in, a dramatic writer develops the characters, actions and dialogue that make stories worth watching.
Professionals in film and television combine excellent communication skills with an academic background in multimedia, art, design, broadcasting and film to create messages through various materials and media.
Performing artists work in multimedia entertainment, television, film and stage, and perform in a variety of roles associated with acting, playwriting, casting, directing and management.
