The 4 Key Elements of Setpieces (Part 2)

Be sure to check out this video for more on setpieces and join my Master Classes on Saturday, October 1st, at 10:45am for an in-depth look at setpieces and sequences (How to Survive Breaking Story). At 1:45pm, learn how to create dynamic characters that actors want play (Creating Characters That Don’t Suck). Both classes will be in room 6301 in the Humanities Forum building.

The Central Coast Writers Conference in San Luis Obispo runs from September 30-October 1. Tickets are still available for purchase at the door. www.centralcoastwritersconference.com. Looking forward to seeing you in class!


The 4 Key Elements of Setpieces (Part 1)

Before we explore why I changed the 5 Keystones to 6 Keystones, let’s discuss what a “setpiece” is and why the 4 major elements that constitute setpieces are critical for a page-turning story. With the studios asking for scripts that are comprised of setpieces or “tiny stories,” you are privy to what the hoopla is all about: 1) interesting intensions or desire, 2) interesting obstacles, 3) an internal obstacle and 4) atmospherics.

If you had gone to the Central Coast Writers Conference (CCWC), you’d hear gems like this all day. If you’re at the CCWC, you’re probably grinning from ear to ear with smug superiority right now. Also, if you made it out to Pismo Beach, be sure to check out my Master Classes on Saturday, October 1st, at 10:45am on movie structure (How to Survive Breaking Story) where I will cover setpieces and sequences. Once you’ve learned to how to structure your story, you’ll want to be at my 1:45pm class on creating dynamic characters (Creating Characters That Don’t Suck). Both classes will be in room 6301 in the Humanities Forum building.

The Writers Conference runs from September 30-October 1. Tickets are availale for purchase at: www.centralcoastwritersconference.com. See you there!

Creating Dynamic Characters at the Central Coast Writers Conference

Join me, Rob Edwards, for my “Creating Characters That Don’t Suck” class on Saturday, October 1st, at 1:45pm at the Central Coast Writers Conference in San Luis Obispo, California. This hour long class will delve into the Disney / Pixar concepts of creating dynamic and compelling characters that great actors will want to play, and are just a few of the “brain trust” philosophies that I learned while working on animated features such as Frozen, The Princess and the Frog and Treasure Planet. The Writers Conference runs from September 30-October 1. Tickets are availale for purchase at: www.centralcoastwritersconference.com. See you there!

Rob’s Reinvention and the Central Coast Writers Conference

Central Coast Rob selfieRob’s longevity in the competitive market of top-tier writers has been due to his passion for the craft and ability to adapt. From knowledge of politics to entertainment trends, Rob continuously pulls rabbits out of hats. The point? That when you are not hearing from Rob, he’s not sitting on a remote white sand beach sipping margaritas, he’s in deep, researching, writing and reinventing himself. From penning some of the top TV sitcoms in the 1980’s and 1990’s, to Disney feature animation writing in the 2000’s, and now this next decade has him transitioning to live-action feature and adaptation writing — not to leave out the two books he is writing. And when he’s not hunkered down exploring life from different angles and organizing them on the page, he looks forward to talking with and meeting all of you; the writers that have gleaned insights in to this thriving and sometimes tough industry through him.

Congratulations Anne Marie!

Many talented people make up Team Rob. Frankly, they do all the work. All I do is walk in, pick up the clicker and start yapping. When they’re not doing literally everything else, Anne Marie, Nancy, Christopher and the gang are out in the world writing fantastic screenplays, making great movies and writing wonderful articles like this one. Congratulations to Anne Marie Boidock for this great article on the Sizoo brothers and their photographic journeys. We look forward to more bylines from her in the future.

Storytelling Secrets Revealed … and a Surprise at 11:30

I was thrilled to be a part of the Central Coast Writers Conference last year for their panel entitled “Crafting of a Masterpiece from Content to Classic”.

This video is packed with great tips on writing both books and screenplays from the legendary Paul Selvin, award winning screenwriter Anthony Peckham (Sherlock Holmes, Divergent), Peter Dunne (“CSI”, “Jag” and the miniseries “Sybil”), the hysterical children’s book author Wendeline Van Drannen, screenwriter and novelist Doug Richardson (Die Hard, Money Train) and my new besties, comedy legend and one of Bob Hope’s favorite writers, Gene Perrett (“3’s Company”, “Welcome Back Kotter”) and thriller novelist Johnathan Mayberry, who I shared a glass of wine or twenty with at the afterparty. No one held back and rolled out their best tactics!

Let me know what you think in the comments below. There’s a surprise at 11:30!
