THE PSYCHOLOGY OF STORYTELLING WITH LINDSAY DORAN
On March 30th at 7:30 pm at the Writers Guild Theater, Lindsay Doran may change everything you think you know about screenwriting. Presented by theBlack List and the WGAw Committee of Women Writers, Lindsay's talk, which was the subject of the New York Times article "Perfectly Happy, Even Without Happy Endings"and which was excerpted in her TEDx Talk titled "Saving the World vs. Kissing the Girl," examines what the field of Positive Psychology can teach us about about the secrets of writing a satisfying movie and how our deep-seated fear of the saber-toothed tiger keeps them a secret. Lindsay is the producer of such movies as SENSE AND SENSIBILITY (for which she was nominated for an Oscar), STRANGER THAN FICTION, NANNY MCPHEE and DEAD AGAIN. (She was also the Executive in Charge of Production on THIS IS SPINAL TAP!) She does story consulting as the Script Whisperer® on high level studio projects and has appeared on the Script Notes podcast. Spoiler Alert: This talk gives away the ending of every movie ever made.
