Event Details

This is a scene-writing workshop from May resident Ken White.
As in other genres, screenplay scenes come in many guises and serve multiple functions, not only to
themselves but also to their immediate context, sequence, and in service to the overall narrative. Using
examples from several contemporary films, we’ll examine scenes from the inside out as a system of
interconnected hinge forms held together with linchpins, pitons, and flexible pivots, all of which work
together to reveal new information about the character and the world, helping to drive the plot forward from one
conflict into the next.
Open to Ages 14 and up
Bring Pen/Paper or Laptop
