  • Harvardwood Presents: The Hidden Tools of Comedy with Steve Kaplan

    Pacific Standard Time

    What is comedy? How does it work? Why does it work? And, most importantly, what's going on when it doesn't work? This session moves past the myths and misunderstanding of comedy, and provides you with usable, practical tools that can elevate your comic writing, directing or performing. 

    Steve Kaplan Bio

    For years, Steve Kaplan has been one of the industry's most respected and sought-after expert on comedy. His first book, The Hidden Tools of Comedy, is a best-seller in its field, and his new book, The Comic Hero's Journey: Serious Story Structure for Fabulously Funny Films was recently published.

    In addition to having taught at UCLA, NYU, Yale and other universities, Steve Kaplan created the HBO Workspace, the HBO New Writers Program and was co-founder and Artistic Director of Manhattan Punch Line Theatre. In addition to development projects for HBO, he has taught workshops at companies such as DreamWorks, Disney Animation, Aardman Animation, NBC's Writers on the Verge, and others.

    In addition to private coaching and one-on-one consultations, Steve has taught his Comedy Intensive workshops to thousands of students around the world, including--in pre-pandemic times--Los Angeles, New York, Australia and Mumbai. He's presently teaching online on Zoom. You can find out all about it at KaplanComedy.com.

    Recommended Reading and Resources: 


  • Harvardwood Presents: Start Your Script the Right Way with Corey Mandell

    In order to have success in the current marketplace, you need to do three things:

    Hook the reader with your characters.
    Hook the reader with your story.
    Hook the reader with your premise.

    The best writers are able to nail all three of those objectives in their first scene.

    Learn a step-by-step process for designing and executing your opening in a way that can truly excite a reader and make them absolutely want to keep reading.

    These are the exact same techniques used in the openings of such projects as Fleabag, Game of Thrones, Orange Is the New Black, Breaking Bad, Atlanta, Stranger Things, 30 Rock, Seinfeld, Succession, Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, Moonlight, Lady Bird, Parasite and countless others.

    Most scripts are rejected after the first scene. Don't let that happen to you.

    Join Corey at 4pm PST on April 22nd, 2021. Tickets below!
