Writing Tips - How to Do a Multi-Genre Show

Recommended by Christopher from patreon, and my first patreon request. Christopher gave me a few options and the one of them that gravitated towards me the most was how to do a multi-genre show. He gave me the example of Futurama, which blended comedy and science fiction. It’s actually a really fascinating idea that I wish more shows would take on. A good place to start would be with a list of genres, and generally what they contain: Action: shows that feature desperate situations like explosions, car chases, fist fights, undermining terrorists, and the like. Spy movies would be an example of a subgenre here, as would superhero movies

So You DON'T Want to Write a Torture Porn?

So You DON'T Want to Write a Torture Porn?

And here's the most common Writing Tips topic: One of the most common questions I ask is "how do I avoid writing a torture porn?" I'm going to assume that you're writing a comedy focused on a lot of slapstick because in the grand scheme of things it's easy to avoid writing a torture porn—don't have anyone get hurt outside of the main conflict, and resolve that conflict by the end. But no, you want to have something like the classic Looney Tunes and want the audience to end up laughing, rather than wondering what exactly went through your head in order to think that that was funny. Keep in mind that whether the audience finds slapstick

Writing Tips - The CSI Effect

Time to talk about a really fun topic: the CSI effect. This is something that every writer should be aware of, and it's probably something that every person should be aware of. The bottom line is that a popular media presence grows expectations that cross over into the real world by its watchers. It's named for the show CSI, which debuted in the year 2000. In the show they use forensic evidence to figure out why criminals did that and sentence them without a reasonable doubt. It actually had an effect on society, in which people on actual juries began demanding more forensic evidence to require people being guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. A

My Bio
Soundcloud profile | Portfolio | Last.FM profile | Twitter account | Facebook page | Personal Blog (in Greek) | Personal Blog (in English)

Once upon a time, a boy who had wild dreams and preferred living in imaginary worlds rather than the actual one got his hands on a computer that made him a special promise: that, through millions of mouse clicks, it would bring his dreams to a life of colored pixels.

More than a decade later, he still makes the same promises to himself through his cool laptop.

My art mantra:
I express.
I expect.
I experiment.

We belong to a maze
of possibilities, where
every instance defines
the norm.

My goal is to invent.
To push boundaries.
To explore the depths
of this so-called reality.
To put the “sane” back
in “insane”.

Welcome,
and enjoy your stay,
in my world of creation.
