Attendees of Karl Iglesias’s Subtext course at Screenwriting Expo 3
Author Karl Iglesias takes an in-depth look at the most challenging area for screenwriters: how to avoid “on-the-nose” dialogue and create dramatic interactions that have subtext—the true meaning and emotions behind the spoken words.
Along with great examples from successful scripts, this title presents:
- Ten proven techniques for creating subtext in your dialogue.
- Three reasons why subtext is such a big deal.
- The dramatic moments when “on-the-nose” dialogue is actually acceptable.
