Workshop
Hebrew Session
Jason Shapiro
Comedy Writer/Social Media Manager/Social Media Strategy Consultant @ Collab
I'm a comedy writer based in Los Angeles, CA. I studied writing and improvisation at the Upright Citizen's Brigade theater and graduated from the program in 2011. I've written for NBC's Betty White's Off Their Rockers, Spike TV Guy's Choice Awards, Syfy's Reactor, Nerdist News Pilot, and my writing has appeared on ABC.com, Hello Giggles, Time, and Huffington Post. I created and run @LosFelizDaycare, LA Weekly's Best Twitter feed in 2015 and 2017. I've sold pilots to 20th Century Fox and Hulu. I'm currently running social media for Collab in LA.

The hardest thing about writing is actually sitting down and doing it- the ideas are the fun part! This session will help us learn best practices for working the muscle that is the writer's brain. In this Jolt session, Jason Shapiro teaches us how to sharpen our voice and bring our creative writing ideas out of the chaos of the creative mind and onto the page. We'll discuss writing spec scripts (drama or comedy scripts based on already existing shows– usually done for practice), original scripts, film screenplays, short stories, comedic online articles and even tweets!
Questions this talk answers:
01
Which is the best medium to get my idea out there?
02
What are some of the best writing practices?
03
How do I try to break into comedy writing?
