Join Tom Schlesinger’s ground-breaking workshop to learn how the Heroine’s Journey approach to storytelling connects you to your audience in the most powerful way – emotionally. You will gain concrete tools and storytelling strategies that immediately apply to female-driven narrative storytelling.
Through lecture, video clips, writing and storytelling exercises, Tom will reveal the unique ways to shape the dramatic arcs of powerful female protagonists, like in The Good Wife, Borgen, Jessica Jones, Homeland, A Separation and Erin Brockovich. Tom will also include a special segment on the Heroine’s Journey for male protagonists, like Billy Elliot.
Tom Schlesinger has taught storytelling seminars at Pixar Animation Studios, Lucasfilm, the Banff Centre, the Red Bull Media House, the American Film Institute, Constantin Film, the Bayerische Rundfunk, the ARD-ZDF Medienakademie, the Writers Guild of America, the Directors Guild of America, and Constantin Film. Tom was the story mentor on the female-driven Academy Award-winning Nowhere in Africa and Academy Award nominee, Beyond Silence; he was the writer/consultant on the female-driven HBO documentaries A Small Act and Prom Night in Mississippi featuring Morgan Freeman, and was Creative Producer on Shirley: Visions of Reality, which premiered at the Berlinale and has been shown internationally.
