Developing Strong Dialogue in Your Screenplay
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
The common belief is that dialogue cannot be taught; one either has an ear for it or one doesn’t. This is not the case. Great dialogue can be taught like anything else. This webinar will give you this skill – making your characters’ banter clever and snappy, attracting actors and your readership. In this webinar, you will learn how to use visual imagery in your dialogue, which will make it cinematic and memorable, and also understand how sub-text in dialogue makes scenes come alive.
The webinar will be taught by Glenn M. Benest, award winning screenwriter and one of Los Angeles’ most popular instructors of screenwriting workshops.
