On September 6 – 8, 2013, Story Expo brings together over 60 Speakers, 100+ classes and 30+ exhibitors for what is being called, the ‘screenwriting and scriptwriting event of the year.’
Held at the Westin Hotel LAX, Los Angeles, CA, Story Expo is the biggest story conference and exhibition for screenwriters, TV writers, novelists, journalists, graphic novelists, fiction writers, comic book writers and more. Attendees will benefit by learning how and where a story is best told to achieve its greatest success both creatively and financially.
Eric Edson will present four seminars on two topics; “Cracking Screen Story Structure” and “14 Character Categories in All Screen Stories.” Each seminar will last approximately an hour and a half. In these seminars, Eric will cover the 23 interlocking actions used in every successful movie to create dynamic heroes and emotion-filled plots, and 14 character categories that simplify story building for screenwriters.
Eric Edson has written seventeen feature screenplays on assignment for companies including Sony, Warner Brothers, Disney, CBS, and Showtime, as well as writing for episodic television.
