Ken Levin is hosting another Sitcom Room
in mid-November. This is an opportunity to be "in the room" with one of the most experienced sitcom writers / showrunners / creators in the biz.
Most of these seminars are hooey, because they're run by people who couldn't hack it as writers. Ken Levine has written on M*A*S*H, CHEERS, FRASIER, BECKER, and many other top sitcoms.
If I were in LA, I would so totally be there.
It was worth the trip to LA for it. The keystone of the weekend is a *very* long simulation of a writer's room facing a growing list of problems, starting with a poorly written scene and spiraling from there.
Wish I had the money to go. Maybe I should stop film school and just do workshops. I would probably learn more. And it would probably cost less.
