Developing Strong Dialogue in Your Screenplay

In this webinar, you will learn how to use visual imagery in your dialogue, which will make it cinematic and memorable, and also understand how sub-text in dialogue makes scenes come alive.
The webinar will be taught by Glenn M. Benest, award winning screenwriter and one of Los Angeles’ most popular instructors of screenwriting workshops.
