6.00 to 9.30pm
Tutor: Charles Harris
What better way to spend a Spring evening?
RomCom can vary from up-beat and joyful all the way to sharp, sassy and even darkly cynical. The genre can happily include everything from the most off- beat TV sitcom through to some of the greatest (and most insightful) comedies the movies have created.
In this, the second of six popular genre evenings, we survey the comedy field and look at the three key types of comedy - what they require and how writers need to approach each of the three in a very different way. We discuss how RomCom can be mangled in the wrong hands, and how a writer who understands the genre can create great, satisfying enjoyable cinema.
We will also help you tease out which genre or genres are at work in your own projects, and give advice and feedback on how to strengthen their effect and make them work to the advantage of the script.
Come and talk RomCom and we will help you clarify your genre and deliver your story in surprising and satisfying ways.
A must-do workshop.
Maximum 12 per class.
