Watch This Session

With adaptations of comics like Kick Ass, Scott Pilgrim, The Avengers and Batman rocketing the box office, it’s no surprise that more and more comic writers are moving into screenplays. But what about the other direction, with screenwriters like J. Michael Straczynski, Joss Whedon, Edgar Wright and Kevin Smith all writing successful comic series? What about writers like Neil Gaiman or Grant Morrison, who work successfully in both fields? What can comics teach you as a screenwriter? And more importantly, what can a graphic novel of your screenplay do for you?

Join #1 New York Times Bestselling and Eagle Award Winning writer Tony Lee in a workshop that not only shows you the nuts and bolts of how to write a comic script, but how writing that script can actually help you as a screenwriter. Working from the creation of the basic idea all the way to the differences in pacing and style, we guarantee you’ll get something from this workshop!
