The McKee GENRE SEMINAR IN BERLIN!!
This 4-day seminar delves into genres and the long form TV Series, which McKee describes as the evolution of the epic poem, begging for the character and plot complexity great enough to sustain 100 hours of story. The art of long form storytelling is an art all to itself.
Robert McKee's quote on comedy: "There are two kinds of Comedy, Comedy Gets It, and Comedy Does It. Germans love comedy. They get it. Now we want to create a body of writers who does it."
