Tim Ferguson at Blue Mountains Film Fest

Tim Ferguson Comedy Writing Intensive Workshop 

presented by Wit Large

Remember the last well-crafted, funny Australian story you saw on a cinema screen? No? And where are our TV sitcoms? 

Tim Ferguson's two hour seminar is for professional and aspiring screenwriters alike. It will introduce you to the processes of screen comedy, with a focus on the principles of jokes and narrative humour. These principles are ancient, fixed and universally applied through all great comedies. 

Learn how to unpack a comedy film or TV show, about devising comic conflict, with tools such as metaphor, juxtaposition, reversal, story structure, knowledge differential, pathos, subtext and the rhythms of comic dialogue.

This is more than an opportunity to learn from one of Australia's leading comedy industry professionals and most engaging teachers. It's also a chance to study and network with like-minded aspiring screenwriters.
