Summary: From finding an international partner to building and running a course that incorporates the varied sensibilities of participants from each country, educators from National University in Los Angeles and Griffith University Film School in Australia discuss the evolution of their course, which paired students to collaborate on writing a feature film treatment. After the overview of course creation and implementation, panel members will discuss what worked, what didn't, and how our experience may guide future collaborations.
