Redmond: Writers Writing - Screenwriting Development Course Part 2

Thursday, June 14, 2018
6:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Redmond Library
Multi-Purpose Room
Part 2: Moving the Story

In part two our character's intentions and obstacles will become our drive to move our story forward in a way that makes sense and keeps our audience's attention. We will explore the concept of "Theme," and "Tone," and discuss the importance of drama as outlined in "Aristotle's Poetics." Our primary focus in part 2 will be to examine what elements will reach the audience on both the surface/conscious level as well as subconsciously keeping the story moving with purpose and intention. We will examine a few films and their screenplays to see why it works and why it doesn't work, gaining perspective on the power of foreshadow and timely revealing of information.

Sign up for one or sign up for all four.
