In an exclusive question and answer session, our Storytelling for Screen students quizzed tutor Chelsea Morgan Hoffman on what you should send out with your finished script, different writing styles and how to avoid telling the audience too much.
Our John Yorke Story for Script Development students are always full of questions, so writer and guest tutor Justin Young came along to answer some of them. In this, the first of three sessions, he explores how to make use of script editors’ notes.
Chelsea Morgan Hoffman, tutor on John Yorke’s Story for Screen online course, takes questions on 5-act structure, how to perfect a professional outline and how your themes might change dramatically throughout the writing process.
Published for the first time outside the UK, this is the Preface to the US edition of Into the Woods [cite publisher, Lucy and link to US book on their site] in which John Yorke looks at how much nonsense has been written about screenwriting – and how you can tell the real rules of narrative from the fake ones.
John Yorke regularly drops into the practical online course developed to accompany his bestselling book, Into The Woods. This week he met up with screenwriting students in our chatroom to answer questions on writing theme, characters and intertwining storylines.
