THE ART OF THE LONG FORM


With the maturation of the internet, story on television is entering a completely new era - its Golden Age. The all-new TV Day takes advantage of this new paradigm by bringing you the tools and skills to master its challenges. Robert McKee says that if he were a young writer he would work in TV, which has progressed further than the big screen in recognizing the importance of writers and in giving them creative power. This is why today's best writing is on TV. The genres of Genre Week are the content of television - Crime Thriller, Comedy, Love Stories, and Action. But modern television is the evolution of the epic poem, begging for characters complex enough to sustain 100 hours of story. A TV series contains hundreds of acts and thousands of scenes. The art of the long form is an art all to itself.
