Vancouver Online: The Seven Layers of Scene Analysis with Daryll Lynne Evans

June 15, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm

Vancouver Chapter Logo

Scenes, be they large or small, are greater than the sum of their parts. At their core, scenes are a pile of disparate pieces like characters, dialogue, and setting. Yet all these elements somehow work together to make us laugh, cry, and keep us turning the page. But how do scenes do it? Let’s pick apart those layers to understand how scene elements work within the context of the greater whole so we can learn to layer them to achieve that gestalt effect. We’ll look at a little gestalt theory of design and apply it to the construction and analysis of scenes. Join us on June 15 from 6:30 PM - 7:45 PM.
