Staying True to the Core Concept of Your Series
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Have you struggled with figuring out how to build the concept of your show through creating a strong season arc? In this course, Jen Grisanti will go over how to set up a strong season arc that will best illustrate the concept of your show. Then, she will explain how staying true to this core concept connects you with your audience.
The core concept often has an external and an internal component. The external gives you a sense of the world. The internal has to do with the dynamics of the people that infiltrate that world.
When you create strong questions that have to do with the external and the internal world, you create anticipation. When the audience feels the anticipation, you give them a reason to return.
By understanding why your character wants what they want for the episode and the season, you bring us into the emotional component of your story and give us a glimpse into the intention of your concept.
Jen will cover old shows and new shows including – HOMELAND, THE GOOD WIFE, HAPPY VALLEY, SILICON VALLEY and TRANSPARENT.
