I read LOADS of scripts that try to use advanced storytelling techniques, such as time jumps, tandem narrative, flashback and non-linearity. And guess what: 99% of them do not use these techniques well. This is why these techniques end up with a bad name in the spec pile, which of course is such a shame and threatens creativity as readers on work experience end up believing McKee-style assertions about supposed “lazy writing” instead.
If only there was someone who ran classes on HOW to use these devices WELL…
… Oh wait THERE IS! None other than Linda Aronson. Now I met Linda at London Screenwriters Festival last year and can not only report she’s a LOVELY PERSON, she’s great at what she does as well – which is explaining how narrative works and how we can break it down and represent it.
Linda is running one such class this November (12th/13th), brought to you by Team LSF. A 2 Day Class, this would normally be £119.00 – but to Bang2writers, you need only pay £65!!! That’s right. Just SIXTY FIVE POUNDS – that’s £32.50 per day for fab insights that could very well change your scriptwriting for the better FOREVER.
