“Ready? FIGHT! This week’s workshop we’re all about conflict. Us vs them, man vs woman, you vs you, its the core element of nearly every plot, story and character arc in history. Johnny Shortall takes us on wild ride through all its forms and features.
YASSSS to all of the above, cannot wait for this one folks
The wonderful and insanely talented Ciaran Treanor will be doing his workshop on Melodrama.
Melodrama, definitely not mellow drama. Heh heh heh.
In modern terms, melodrama is typically a dramatic work wherein the plot, which is often sensational and designed to appeal strongly to the emotions, takes precedence over detailed characterization. Bye-bye nuance! Melodramas typically concentrate on dialogue, which is often bombastic or excessively sentimental, rather than action. Melodrama acting styles tend to be overdramatic and unrealistic. But all of this, when done right, can be fairly entertaining.
We will be exploring some fun games and materials in the theme of melodrama. Gettin’ silly with it. That’s the plan. I look forward to seeing you fine folks there.
