BREAKOUT WORKSHOP TRACK 1

Film & Books

- John Dawson

 

​Storytelling & Screenwriting – breakout workshop with John Dawson

Being a writer requires more than a vivid imagination and dedication. One needs to have a deep understanding of ‘Story’, its purpose, and its parts, regardless of the form in which one’s story is presented IE novels, short stories, comics, plays, film screenplays, games and TV shows scripts.  John will deep-dive with you into Story: its role in the human experience. He will work with you to ensure that you have a clear understanding of a story’s components: logic, theme, character and archetypes, structures, plotting, genres, tone, and how all these must gel together to create a completely rewarding, memorable experience; one of transcendence and transformation.


 

13.15 - 16.50
