    Writing Real & Revealing Dialogue 

    Dialogue done for exposition is boring and lazy. A voiceover can be boring and lazy too (Hint: If your film doesn’t work without the voiceover, chances are it’s weak voiceover. Voiceover should enhance the story, not tell it). Good dialogue isn’t replicating real-life dialogue. If we were to take our everyday conversations with people and put them in a movie, we’d bore each other to death. Dialogue is about moving a story forward, subtext, revealing character and being crisp and unique. In Writing Real & Revealing Dialogue, you’ll learn the tricks of the trade to bring your characters to life with unique voices and dialogue that reveals character and story in every line.
