Writing Seminar: New Structures for New Audiences

  • Tuesday, June 04, 2013
  • 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
  • Conference Room B 2029 Century Park East Century City, CA 90067

The film industry is currently full of films that use flashbacks, time jumps, multiple protagonists, fractured stories and an ensemble cast - films like Slumdog Millionaire, Eternal Sunshine of  the Spotless Mind, The Usual Suspects, Pulp Fiction, 21 Grams, Memento, Atonement, The Hours, Run Lola Run, Babel and Traffic - but standard screenwriting theory provides no help on how to write them.  

  

Linda Aronson explains how all of these films work to patterns based on multiplying, fracturing and sometimes truncating the three act structure in very specific and predictable ways. She explains how writers can use these patterns as templates to create these complex scripts in these new forms faster and greater safety.
