Bring a dialogue scene that touches, shocks or fascinates you, that totally draws you in, a dialogue that you can’t get out of your head. You always wondered what’s behind the power of those characters’ words and you would love to let your own dialogues flow like that. Let’s analyze the hidden dynamic in this film dialogue of your choice (not longer than 5 minutes). Together with Katti Jisuk Seo, you will discover TOOLS and apply them in CREATIVE WRITING exercises. Katti will guide you through ANALYZING those dialogue scenes in THINK TANKS. Step by step you will break down the power of dialogues that flow like ping pong: subtext, body language, power games, arguments, dilemma dynamic, backstory hints, rhythm, visual storytelling in dialogues, relationship between words and images, conflict dynamic, worldview clashes, non-linear insights etc. This way you build your own pool of dialogue tools to use in our creative exercises for writing cinematically. In addition to your own writing method being developed here, Katti will share the most important steps of HOW SHE WRITES DIALOGUES HERSELF.
