How to Make Sparks Fly: Learn Romantic Comedy From The Masters
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
During this webinar we will deconstruct scenes from “Notting Hill,” “Trainwreck,” and “Silver Linings Playbook.” We will see what they all have in common, what comedic “tricks of the trade” these screenwriters are using and how you can easily adopt these techniques in your own screenplays.
We will discover certain rules that work time and time again: always having an adversary that threatens the romance of your protagonists, how to use a “straight man” and a “funny man” and how to always inject physical humor into every great romantic relationship.
The webinar will be taught by Glenn M. Benest, award winning screenwriter and one of Los Angeles’ most popular instructors of screenwriting workshops.
