Screenwriting Workshop - BigRock



Cinema is the how, not the what - Guided tour of the facility in three acts

A journey into the most famous film structure, the authentic backbone of more than a century of visual storytelling.

Starting with the Hitchcock quote that gives the masterclass its title, we will discover the unsuspected similarities between very different masterpieces that have made the history of the Seventh Art.

From Back to the Future to Casablanca, from When Harry Met Sally to the most celebrated Pixar-made shorts: the secret to any box office success is a solid foundation, evolving characters and perfectly calibrated twists.

The masterclass lasts 2:30 and will be held in-person in BigRock's BigCinema at 11:00 am. There will be a short break in the middle of the workshop to conclude with a final Q&A
