THE 21ST CENTURY STORYTELLER WITH LINDA ARONSON : Taking your film and TV writing to the next level
Have You Got A Great Story That Just Won’t Work In The Traditional Three Act Structure?
While the nineties and noughties were dominated by three act script gurus, broadcasters, production companies, agents and most importantly, audiences, are consistently demanding more elegant and sophisticated stories (and therefore screenplays). Linda Aronson's 2 Day masterclass on advanced theories and techniques for creating original story design explodes conventional screenwriting theory for both feature film and TV.
Linda is the world's leading expert in new story techniques and tools such as Flashback, Time Jumps, Tandem Narrative, Multiple Protaganists, Double Journeys, Consecutive Stories and Fractured Tandem (used in films like Pulp Fiction, Inception, Atonement and 21 Grams)... She has created robust and powerful frameworks from which you can build those stories you want to tell, stories that feel limited or underdeveloped in a linear three act structure.
Linda’s radical and utterly new approach is searched out by screenwriters and screen editors who are looking for practical guidelines for creating flashback, multiple protagonist and fractured structure films as both mainstream film and TV now regularly use nonlinear and ensemble forms.
For TV writers, the masterclass incorporates a session she first created for BBC TV’s leading drama writers, explaining how a variety of nonlinear structures can reinvent and even fix TV series and mini-series, serials and single dramas.
