with John Yorke
If you want your story to work, you aren’t aiming high enough. A story must soar and light an emotional fire in the reader (and eventually… the viewer). The cave must FEEL scary on the page. The danger must FEEL real. The love must make the heart swell and burst.
Join story expert John Yorke as he teaches how to marry the head and the heart and produce the results on the page and in the soul of the reader.
Appearing in this session
Credits include Wolf Hall, Shameless, Life On Mars, EastEnders
Sunday 31st May
Set the world’s troubles aside as you spend Sunday morning writing. Dive deep into your work in progress, participate in writing exercises, get some one-on-one guidance, or simply put words on the page.
X-Files writer Frank Spotnitz has chosen one of his favorite episodes, and now he’s going to watch it with us as we give “Memento Mori” the Script To Screen treatment. Pop some corn, settle in, and learn the truth (which is, as always, out there) in this essential episode.
It’s not always easy to see them, but 90% of the flaws in your screenplay can be self-diagnosed, providing you know how to analyse a script.
