So, You're Out of Touch - Writing Young Characters

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Reconnecting with your younger self is not an easy feat, nor is writing a character that grew up in a completely different world than you. Capturing the voice of today's youth can be even more challenging as generational differences— like new technologies, lifestyles, cultures, and slang — build walls between us. Hear from distinguished screenwriters with experience writing contemporary children, teens, and young adults.

Must have an AFF Producers or Conference Badge for entry.
