Meet Me Now, Squeeze Me Later: Crafting the Studio Romantic Comedy

MEET ME NOW, SQUEEZE ME LATER: CRAFTING THE STUDIO ROMANTIC COMEDY
Two gorgeous diametrically opposed people meet, build an impenetrable bond despite the fact that they hate each other, and then fall head over heels in love. Sounds easy, right? Think again. Formulas are always dangerous, but certain building blocks are common to every good studio romantic comedy. In this one-day class, veteran screenwriter Victor Levin will teach you about “The Meet” and “The Squeeze” and show you how to embed your scenes with humor and charm. By the end of the class, you'll have written these key moments into your own script!
