John Higgins began his screenwriting education in 2013 at The Film School at SCC. Over the past three years, John has honed in his particular visual storytelling style through intensive training in proper screenplay format, character dialogue, Final Draft, and utilizing the sequence approach.
Before committing to screenwriting, John studied filmmaking at the New York Film Academy in New York City from 2004 to 2006. While there, John learned basic storytelling methods, digital cinematography, and editing using AVID and Final Cut Pro.
Unique traits: I wrote my first screenplay in 2015. After it went to the 2nd round in the AFF Screenplay Competition, I had the confidence to finish two more feature length scripts. We'll see how these do in the various competitions!
