Non-Static Writing : 6 Week Workshop begins Tuesday March 9th 2010. This is an online 6 week advanced course on non-static writing taught by yours truly Max Adams. There is a reason movies are called “moving pictures.” Because they move. This course is about keeping those pictures moving within a script. Subjects include opening environments, using open and closed environments, moving characters within enclosed environments, using dialogue to create tension within closed environments, using and not using filters and — how to kill a scene in under five seconds with an electronic device.
[You do not want to do that last one.]
Course fee is $270. Course length is 6 weeks. Seating is limited. Send email for course sign up to : courses @ seemaxrun.com
