Description

Class Experience

Students will get to learn the basics of storytelling while also learning some fun things about the history of horror.
Not only have I been a professional writer and filmmaker for two decades now, but I also happen to be a genre specialist. I co-founded a production company that was designed to create content in every and all genres and therefore had to learn everything I could about every genre that came our way.

Horror, unsurprisingly, came up a lot. So, there's a lot I know, and a lot I have to share about the genre.
1 hour 5 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We are talking horror so we'll be talking about things considered horrendous. Though we'll go through and see some visually scary images, I will be staying away from showing anything overtly gory or sexual in nature. These topics can and will be discussed if brought up, but nothing too graphic will be displayed in class.
