Come experience the famous “Hart Chart” first hand. James V. Hart (Hook, Contact, Bram Stoker’s Dracula) will explore how to develop characters and stories by getting to the “heart” of the script. Using Graham Moore’s The Imitation Game as an example, join this breakdown of establishing main character desires, charting their progress toward their goals, and creating a successful resolution. Through the Hart Chart’s guidelines for implementing craft, learn how to embrace structure as a friend, not an enemy, and how to flesh out ideas for the screen.

Those who enrolled in the advance sign-up for this session are required to show up 15 minutes early and will be admitted first. The panel will then open to remaining Badge holders.
