The experience of dialogue

Good post by Chris Corrigan: Our experience of dialogue.

This clip is interesting: interviews with screenwriters who point out the function of dialogue in a television show. One of the high points of writing dialogue it turns out, is that it will never be effective if people are actually seen talking to each other. So it’s no surprise that bringing these forms of conversation into the real world creates all sorts of dysfunctional social situations.

    Thanks for the link Johnnie. Most interesting TV I’d seen for years.

    Love the bit of Jimmie McGovern wisdom that RTD quotes … “I’d rather be confused for 10 minutes than bored for 5 seconds.”
