CURRENTLY SOLD OUT. Audit spots available for sale below.
“Auditing” a workshop means you simply observe / take notes. You must remain seated and should not participate in any of the exercises.

Dave Hill (Hulu’s “Quick Draw”) and Matt Jones (“Breaking Bad”) form the duo Hill Jones and have been playing together for 5 years.  Their fast-paced, character driven stories take on a life of their own; with no two shows following the same structure or style.  In this workshop they will share the concept that drives their shows:  letting the choices and discoveries of vivid characters dictate the structure and path of long-form shows.  Letting the truth of characters drive the action…and enjoying the ride!
