The Comic Hero’s Journey 

Webinar with Steve Kaplan!

You have a great idea for a comedy film, so how do you develop it from inciting incident through to the climax and resolution?

Most writers are familiar with Joseph Campbell and the Hero’s Journey. But what about the hero in a comedy?
This session will show you the often over-looked adjustments required in structuring the comic screenplay or pilot.

In the 90-minute webinar you can expect:

  • a handful of practical tips from one of the top gurus of professional screenwriters
  • a Q&A session where you will get answers to any questions you may have
  • and… it all is recorded! The recording will be available to you for the next 48 hours.
