We're back in the Writers Room this afternoon for a special The Breakdown Webcast: Writing Adaptations with Special Guest, Writers' Room Member Stephen Potts! Stephen Potts is a screenwriter specializing in adaptations with one feature film produced (a Philip Pullman adaptation), four others optioned. Also author of children's adventure fiction (seven books published) and writer for stage and radio.
Dark comedies intend to make light of events that would otherwise be considered too painful to discuss. The hope is that viewers will gain a cathartic experience, or simply laugh at some absurd situation. During this webcast, Jason Mirch discusses the 6 principles of how to make Dark Comedies work, while showing clips of some of the best dark comedies as examples.
We will be discussing why conflict among your allies is essential! When we typically think of "Conflict" in story it is usually Protagonist vs. Antagonist. But in this Breakdown, using scripts and clips from our favorite films, we will explore conflict between allies and how it can help make your screenplay stronger.
Dramedy is a compelling genre to write because many argue it best captures the realities of life. There are comedic moments in some of the most tragic of times and dramatic moments that give way to levity. During the webcast, we examine some of the most critically and commercially successful dramedies - including "FLEABAG", PARENTHOOD (1989), THE BIG SICK, and SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK to understand why they work so well. We also discuss ways in which you can develop your characters and narratives so that your dramedy is as authentic as possible.
Great Characters should have Great Introductions. Join us as we breakdown how characters are introduced in features and TV scripts including Star Wars, Fargo, The Good Place, Mad Men, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Arrested Development.
