Introduction to Suspense
with Ian Lon
Suspense is all about manipulating information within stories – mainly, revealing and withholding it. But this basic concept covers a lot of ground. The principles of suspense can enrich every form of drama, as well as literary fiction (novels and short stories); and they can be applied in numerous forms, from the extreme to the subtle.
As well as creating unforgettable scenes and sequences, suspense can lead audiences through long narratives such as TV series, keeping viewers glued to the screen for season after season. And it isn’t a static concept; it’s constantly evolving.
This webinar will set out the principles of suspense, showing how playing with information can enrich stories, and will give writers and filmmakers a taste of Ian’s workshops, which include a day-long seminar on suspense.
