Screenwriting with Caitlin Durante
Play • 1 hr 2 min

We’re overjoyed to be joined by Caitlin Durante! Caitlin is a writer, comedian and co-host of the hugely successful Bechdel Cast, a podcast about the representation of women in film. As a stand-up she has performed all over America as well as the Edinburgh Fringe festival. She teaches screenwriting workshops from her home in L.A., drawing on her knowledge as a story analyst and script expert. Jade talks to Caitlin about her writing process, tips for forming solid characters from a range of backgrounds, and how (shock horror) James Cameron’s Titanic does not have a good screenplay!
