This workshop focuses on character-driven storytelling, going beyond plot formulas and binary morals. A study of contemporary screenplays and films with complex protagonists and challenging relationships (character introduction, intimate moments, dramatic tension, the “necessary and unavoidable” obstacle, exploring theme and story, subtext and text)
Format: A healthy mix of lecture and workshop, viewing clips, analyzing scenes from screenplays, and creating a scene with dramatic tension.
