NEW STRUCTURES IN SCREENWRITING WITH LINDA ARONSON
10 February, 2014 by IF
Script guru Linda Aronson’s two-day masterclass on advanced theories and techniques for creating original story design explodes conventional screenwriting theory for both feature film and TV.
Linda’s radical and utterly new approach is searched out by screenwriters and screen editors who are looking for practical guidelines for creating flashback, multiple protagonist and fractured structure films as film and TV now regularly use nonlinear and ensemble forms.
Alone among screenwriting gurus, Linda Aronson explodes the conventional screenwriting theory which assumes that structure means only one hero on a linear chronological journey. Instead she takes on and provides practical writing guidelines for writing flashback scripts, Pulp Fiction structures, multiple storyline films and even fractured forms like 21 Grams, Crash and The Hours . She shows how eighteen of these modern forms all work to predictable patterns, and provides practical, down to earth templates for writing them.
For TV writers, the seminar incorporates a session she first created for BBC TV’s leading drama writers, explaining how a variety of nonlinear structures can reinvent and even fix TV series and mini-series, serials and single dramas.
Linda Aronson’s two-day masterclass on advanced theories and techniques for creating original story design routinely provokes standing ovations from acclaimed and experienced film writers all over the world. She brings this new course to Australia for the first time, AFTRS Open are very pleased to offer you the opportunity to attend. Don’t miss out!
