We're back in the Writers' Room for the Breakdown Webcast: Tackling Tone. Tone is the most elusive element of screenwriting. Particularly because much of the tone of a project is conveyed by much more than just the script. Tone is really the culmination of every artistic and aesthetic choice made during the production process from the screenplay, the angles of the camera, the choices the actors make, cinematography, pacing of a scene, music, costume design, and more. During this webcast, we discuss how to capture tone on the page in ways that you are able to convey a vision that can be interpreted by the other artists who will come to work on the project. We examine some of our favorite films and television series to see how tone was captured on the page and then realized on the screen. We also discuss tips on how you can achieve balance and clarity in your tone.

Isn't it ironic? In this Breakdown Webcast we discuss Dramatic Irony - when the audience knows more information about the circumstances the characters find themselves in than the characters do themselves. There are actually several different types of "irony" in storytelling and we will be looking at most of them during this packed hour. We will pay special attention to Dramatic Irony which can be used for dramatic, comedic, suspenseful or tragic effect. During this webcast we'll discuss different ways of utilizing dramatic irony and how it effects the emotional connection we have with our characters and the heightened tension and stakes it creates.
