The HartChart: La La Land

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Come experience the famous “HartChart” 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 Damien Chazelle’s award-winning La La Land as a case study, join this breakdown of establishing main character desires, charting their progress toward their goals, and creating a successful resolution. Through the HartChart’s guidelines for implementing craft, learn how to embrace structure as a friend, rather than an enemy, and how to flesh out ideas for the screen.
FaceTime interview with writer/director Damien Chazelle to kick off the session!

THIS IS AN EXTENDED PANEL THAT WILL END AT 4:15PM. 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 remaining seats will then open to badge holders.
