Film London Labs: The Genre Sessions

About this Event

Following on from two installations of Film London Labs: The Writers Sessions, we're going deeper. We learned there is a real appetite for training in genre writing so our next collaboration with Angeli Macfarlane will be Film London Labs: The Genre Sessions.

Over seven sessions you will be given advice and insight into key genres as well as have the opportunity to request help on a genre of your choice. The Lab will deliver a unique opportunity for some very specific training tailored to the rules of genre and story tone. This is a first lab of its kind and it is aimed at any writer working on a specific genre who might need help. Creative producers keen to learn more about how to support writers are also welcome.

The film and TV industries use genre to create clarity for its audience and to ensure that their content follows that audience's expectations. For writers and directors, however, the challenges are more complex. The notion of genre-busting, of genre-elevation and so on can create confusion and anxiety and in this series of sessions curated by Angeli, these problems will be addressed and solutions explored for your writing. There are many simple take-home rules and clear ways of thinking about story that will help you shape your material.

The series will analyse specific genres during different sessions. The large, umbrella genres of Drama, Thriller, Comedy and Horror will be analysed, There will also be room to look at hybrid genre and others such as Sci-Fi, as well as a final mop-up session where participants can vote for any other genre they would like Angeli to drill into.

Dates:

Thursday 26th, Friday 27th November

Wednesday 9th, Thursday 10th December

Wrap up: Monday 14th December

All sessions will be held on Zoom from 1-3pm.
