Tim back for Screenwriting Expo 6

Posted on August 10, 2007 | Comments (2)

“Tim Minear is smart. Learn from him and be smarter.”
—Joss Whedon

Tim will participate in this year's Screenwriting Expo with his Breaking the Story Seminar.

Sun. Oct 28, 2007
3:00 PM - 7:00 PM

An interactive exercise in breaking a single episode of an hour drama. We’ll decide by consensus if it’s to be an episode of Angel, Firefly, or Wonderfalls. Using a white board and the group mind, we’ll recreate what happens in a writers’ room, with slightly less profane humor. We’ll conceptualize an original episode, then board out teaser and four acts. Emphasis on theme and structure.

You can sign up for Tim's Master Class at the Screenwriting Expo 6 website.

You can also purchase a DVD of Tim's class from Screenwriting Expo 4 here.



I'm am writer living in the North of the UK, would love it if Tim would come and do a seminar across the water one of these days, whilst not a screen writer, the angel/firefly story breakdown 'method' has been very useful to me both on a novel I'm putting together, and with various stories. would love to be in one of the seminars to bed the process in my mind further, as I have picked up the jist of it from the dvds, bits of stuff on the web, and study.

If I can make a few requests:

1. More profane humor.
2. Juniors (of the class) get called on/made fun of first.
3. "Here's Some Stuff" part two, featuring more with a young Tim, preferably with a mullet of some sort.
