APPLYING SKETCH PRINCIPALS TO DRAMATIC WRITING
Is it surprising that one of the greatest sketch writers of all time (Jordan Peele) went on to be an Oscar winning screenwriter? Not at all! A bevy of screenwriters use Game, Beats and Heightening to help make scenes come alive and use pattern to help structure their work. Join us to dissect scenes from Midsommar, Marie Antoinette, Booksmart and Get Out (among others) and see how you can employ these principles to breath new life into your scenes. During the second half, we'll workshop a scenes from your own projects that you'd like to polish or restructure. (Disclaimer: These movies will be spoiled for you, so watch them now. The scenes we will screen include nudity, suicide and one absolutely gruesome death scene)
Note: Due to COVID-19, some sessions of this course may meet remotely, online.
