Even the darkest drama is leavened by lighter or comic moments. But for the writer or director crafting drama for television or film it can be hard to find these moments – and even harder to successfully pull them off.
Writers James Griffin (Sione’s Wedding, Outrageous Fortune, Diplomatic Immunity) and Paula Boock (The Insiders Guide, Until Proven Innocent, Time Trackers) and director Jonathan Brough (The Insiders Guide, Outrageous Fortune, Legend of the Seeker) will talk to writer and current Shortland Street producer Steven Zanoski about achieving comedy and irony in dramatic work from both a writing and directing perspective.
