The Secret Patterns of Science Fiction & Fantasy Screenplays

32 STUDENTS ENROLLED

These two genres are two sides of one vivid, colorful story form — in one, science gets you into a problem and gets you out, in the other it’s all about faith and magic.Both feature astonishing worlds – and how you create that world is half the battle! We show you how to ‘world build’ in both genres, give you the ‘weed and speed’ both audiences love (each is different), and, crucially, give you the six characters that the greatest fantasists employ to push their hero forward (they are specific to fantasy, and don’t change!). We also show you how the amazing Tool of ‘sequencing’ works to tell 12 mini-stories inside one of the greatest sci fi movies ever (J J Abrams is the master of this, and we show you this in his fantastic first STAR TREK).

Movies used in this class: LORD OF THE RINGS, HARRY POTTER, WIZARD OF OZ, STAR TREK (JJ Abrams), BLADE RUNNER, GATTACA
