Audience Experience Includes:
"Audience Experience" as a creative term evolved from Writers Boot Camp's emphasis on conceptual development and our goal of helping our alumni create distinctive material that entertains in a unique way. In this way, Audience Experience reaches beyond story. Too few writers and filmmakers remember to focus on what the audience is feeling and imagining, thinking and wondering—what we are anticipating at any given moment or within a scene, based on what we know of the character and the story, and often what the character does not know that we know.
Character and story development are very important aspects of professional craft that we teach fundamentally, yet not as profound as the fulfillment of the visceral audience experience. An audience will forgive a weaker story that is emotionally moving, or support a performance even when there are logic problems or story holes. he real challenge of the craft of screenwriting and television writing is the creation of an Audience Experience, whether sitting in a theater, on the couch or using a handheld device or ipad.Learn more about our coursework!
Along with the failure to cultivate rooting interest for characters, new writers become so wrapped up in the content of their scripts that they forget to focus on the cinematic and emotional experience for the audience.
Writers Boot Camp's coursework accelerates professional process and focuses on conceptual development of a script that translates to unique entertainment and the audience's visceral experience and connection.
