by John R. Strange

 

Today, I sampled the panels and classes at MegaFest.  The festival is going all weekend at the Dallas Convention Center, Omni Dallas Convention Center Hotel, and the American Airlines Center.  The panels and classes were all at the Omni Hotel.  I learned a lot and got some good photos.  I have listed the panels and some photos to go with them below.  (All descriptions are from the MegaFest website.)

Writing the Vision for Television

Speakers: Cory Tynan, Devon Shepard

Moderator: James Faust

Whether a project debuts on television, online, or DVD, it must begin with a solid script. Screenwriting is a technical and emotional art form that requires knowledge of story structure, timing, and proper character development. Without understanding how these three interrelate, even the best ideas will fail to translate from paper to screen. Our Screenwriting Experts will walk you through the process of developing compelling characters, creating and using conflict to propel your plot, and meeting the structural requirements needed to tell an emotionally engaging story for television audiences and beyond
