What is your favorite part about writing?
Asking clients this question always reveals their voice, a.k.a the story they are trying to tell through their writing, rather than the subject they are writing about. It is an underrated gift to be able to express oneself in a clear and concise way, so acknowledging one's uniqueness is always crucial to honing their assignment or creative project.
How many plays did Shakespeare write and why is this important?
When people hear that William Shakespeare only wrote 37 plays (not including sonnets) in his career, they are always surprised. It seems as though there must have been more work because his impact has been so ubiquitous. This is important to understand because writing to a requirement can feel daunting, but remembering that quality supersedes quantity can help!
Subject: Film and Theater
How has Theater as an artistic medium translated over time into the medium of Film? With technological advancement, what has stayed the same? What has changed?
Film has added another layer of storytelling by expanding the visual range of how stories can be told, but Theater remains one of the oldest performance arts as it continues to resonate with audiences and bring people together in a tangible, encompassing experience. Technological advancements have allowed for both Film and Theater to thrive in the development of special effects such as pyrotechnics, virtual reality, and so on.
