Mon 12 Sept, 6-7pm, Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision, Wellington
Whether it’s odd-ball characters, slapstick or dark humour, in sketch or narrative content, are we making the most of our potential to write great comedic work for the screen? This September we bring together a panel of screenwriters and comedians for serious discussion about comedy.
Join us to hear from writer/actor Loren Taylor (EXISTENCE, EAGLE VS SHARK, KOMBI NATION), actor/writer Charlie Bleakley (CHILD PROOF, COCONUT), and writer/actor/director/producer Paul Yates (GIRL VS BOY, WHAT NOW?) as they talk to actor/writer/playwright Tom Sainsbury (SUPER CITY, DYNAMOTION) about the challenge of creating comedic stories and characters that come alive on screen.
Come early for a drink and stay afterwards for a slice of pizza on us.
Monday 12 September, 5.30pm drinks, 6-7pm talk. Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision, 84 Taranaki Street. $5 koha appreciated.
