GOOD IN THE ROOM!: A 1-DAY LOS ANGELES SCENE PUNCH-UP WORKSHOP

ShamelessHave you ever fantasized about working in the writer’s room for your favorite TV show? You can do it, but you need the help of an industry insider. Enter veteran screenwriter Cindy Caponera (Nurse Jackie, Shameless, Saturday Night Live). In this one-day Los Angeles Scene Punch-Up Workshop, she’ll show you how to pace your scene, find the jokes or dramatic core, and finesse your timing for perfect delivery. Through an insightful craft talk, Cindy will explain how informed writing ensures smooth shooting and she’ll school you in the ways of writer’s room etiquette and steer you clear of common rookie mistakes. You’ll workshop a scene of a spec script or pilot and Cindy will help you hone the beats and punch up jokes. By the end of the class, you’ll have a game plan for making your scene as funny or dramatic as it can be and a new understanding of how to edit your work to maximize comic or dramatic opportunities. Before you know it, Showtime will be knocking on your door!
