It took me a few months to get through all 19 of these videos but now I have a great script! Lots of info on things I never learned in any writing or film class. Special focus on digital film making and animation too. There are samples of this class on YouTube which is how I found out about it. It has changed the way I write and made it much easier to plan out. Great for students or people new to digital film or animation!
The best part of this class are the hundreds of subtext examples. Subtext adds depth so the scene does not MEAN what the scene appears at first to mean. Learning how to use subtext in this class will change the way you think about writing. It did for me. Definetely a stand alone lesson for writers of any genre.
You will start to write thinking in two layers. There is what is Said and what is Not. Both are just as important! I never understood subtext so well until I took this class and heard so many examples it just clicked!
