Secrets of Subplots – Webinar

Needs a location

Webinar Event Date: Saturday, August 22, 2020 || Speaker: Geoffrey D. Calhoun || Start time: 1:00 pm PST || The main plot can only take you so far. Subplots are essential to add content and buff out your story. Subplots are not random events and filler added to a script just to hit a page mark. That creates an erratic story which will be lambasted by the film community and your peers. Subplots are designed from the bottom up to properly support and reinforce your stories theme, concept, and characters. This seminar will breakdown the proper subplots to utilize and how they intersect with a main plot. See more information below.
