About this course:
There is something to be said for letting your ears paint the pictures. Before television, radio served as the primary mode of entertainment for audiences seeking powerful storytelling. Radio’s transition to “scripted audio” or “scripted podcasts” has opened doors for screenwriters to write, produce, and release their own content, which may in turn be picked up and adapted for film and television. All those years it was drummed into screenwriters ‘show don’t tell’. You can’t show. There is no screen! You adjust to thinking in terms of sound only. APPLAUSE!
