The Art of Misjudgment (Screenwriting)

Recurring event see all

November 21 @ 9:00 am 4:00 pm

A different approach to writing movies (and all stories). Stories are often constructed by creating a character who desires…and then throwing obstacles in the path of that desire. We’ll do something a little off-beat. We’ll link the character’s desire to a misjudgment or mistake and then show how the misjudgments and mistakes build on one another to make the story move forward. We’ll watch film scenes, dissect them, then write our own. The basics in form, format, and style will be covered. From Eve trusting the serpent to The Joker thinking he’ll make it as a stand-up, misjudgments and mistakes are a vital aspect to storytelling.
