Workshop Overview

Learn the building blocks of storytelling. Understand how to craft a story in three parts, take your protagonist on a transformative journey beyond the point of no return and use physical surroundings as your antagonist. Excerpts of popular movies will be shown as supporting examples within this workshop. Participants will leave with a greater understanding of how to utilize a three-act storytelling technique to write unique and entertaining stories.
