Suspense For All Genres

Your script is the most amazing thing ever, but your audience is falling asleep … until now!  One of the world’s leading Hitchcock suspense scholars, and author of the upcoming Suspense With a Camera, teaches you how to start writing suspense for the screen.  This class includes full clips from notable films, and brings the secrets of suspense out of the shadows for all film genres to use.

Learn the difference between tension and suspense, how to plant secrets, how to write basic “words” in creating a visual sentence, and how the writer and director can lure the audience into a greater connection with your story world.  You’ll walk away with more confidence in creating tension and suspense in your next script.
