Join us for the latest installment of our Master Class series with writer Mark Monroe, whose work on such high profile documentaries such as The Cove and Fed Up has made him the "go-to" writer and indispensable collaborator for numerous top documentary producers and directors. By breaking down and explaining his process and using highly illustrative examples from his career, Mark will show you how the right writer can make the difference between projects having great potential and those that deliver the goods. Mark’s collaborative process with producers, directors and editors is the key. How he works with the creative team and his contributions to the structural, thematic and narrative elements of a documentary make him an integral and vital part of the process. Mark will show how you, too, can learn to see your stories with fresh eyes and take your films to the next level.
