Imagine The Great Escape without the escape or Muriel’s Wedding without the weddings. From E.T.’s bicycle chase to Little Miss Sunshine’s "pageant sequence" to Six Feet Under’s funerals or Breaking Bad’s Winnebago disaster, sequences form the backbone of TV series or film and stick in audiences’ memories.

Providing focus and pace, sequences are vital tools for any writer and this workshop examines a variety of memorable sequences— from funerals to dreams to heists to high school reunions— and breaks-down how they work and how they can be used effectively to strengthen scripts.
