Subtext is the narrative element held up as the essential underpinning of drama keenly sought after by actors and directors. However, it is also the one element that is rarely discussed in a useful way for screenwriting.
Often it’s what is unsaid that hits hardest. It’s also what makes great writing stand out. This session will provide clear strategies for shaping subtext in a screenplay, developing its role in scene structure and creating meaningful dialogue.
This event is a part of LFA’s collaboration with the London Screenwriters’ Festival.
