jamLABS: Writing for Television w/ Jordyn Fitch

May 18 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Jordyn 4x3 1

Wednesday 5/18 6-9pm

Have you ever watched a really awful episode of something and thought, I could definitely do this better? Well you’re right, you probably could. Let’s put the Sam Levinson’s of the world out of business. In this media lab, we will focus on writing for television. You’ll learn and discuss the basic conventions of TV writing, and how it varies from writing for the silver screen, as well as delve into the differences between episodic and serial story structures, writing for genre, and how to know what medium works best for telling your story. It is my hope that you walk away not only with an in depth understanding of how to structure your words on the page in the industry standard format, but also engage in an exploration of all the wonderful unique quirks that come along with packaging a television show (longlines, story bibles, and the elevator pitch, oh my!) Whether you have a pilot idea that’s been bonking around in your cranium for years, or just really love a good binge show, I hope this media lab can serve as an entry point for you into the dynamic world of my very, very favorite medium.

Jordyn grew up in Miramar, Fl, but if you ever ask, they’ll say Miami because who here really knows where Miramar, Florida is? They attended Dartmouth College and pursued a Film and Media Studies major, planning on declaring a minor at some point in something that would assuage parental fears of having a child that is a Film and Media Studies major. It never happened.
