INSIDE STORY: HARNESSING THE POWER THEME
In the process of developing plot and character, it's easy to lose track of those elements that give your story significance and meaning. In this course, you will learn how to consistently develop scripts that contain more depth and substance because they have a strong thematic core that defines and drives the narrative.
You will be introduced to advanced techniques that will help define your theme and use it as a unifying principle that informs every character choice and plot decision you make. Knowing how to utilize the power of theme enhances your ability to write something you care about that connects more deeply with audiences and makes producers sit up and pay attention.
