Creating Comedy From The Ordinary

Pat Battistini, last year’s Audience Choice Award winner, will be discussing where we find humor in everyday life and how to expand it into creative writing and filmmaking. The workshop will explore how filmmakers can learn from examples of past comedies and create their own comedic moments within their writing.

 

We all need comedy – join us to learn how!
