Identifying Your Screenplay's Theme with Studio Analyst

Hosted by Jeremiah Smith - Reader/Analyst, Mar Vista Entertainment

How many times have you been asked to identify the theme of your script? How many times have you replied, "Um...family/love/coming of age....?" And how many times have you been met with a blank look from the other side of the table? Theme is one of those aspects of script writing that is simply not tangible but incredibly important.

The definition of what a 'theme' is can be vague and confusing, so to help you navigate the labyrinth, Roadmap is excited to have Jeremiah Smith offer instruction on how to identify the deeper meaning in your script. He will explain how the theme of your script is one of the three key components to bringing it all together.

This 90-Min. Webinar Will Cover:
  -What 'theme' is, why you're missing it, and why you need it
  -Why the answer to 'what is your theme' is never ever just 'love'
  -The difference between genre and theme
  -Live Q&A!
