SOAP OPERA PROJECT
Create a TV style soap opera episode
Creating a Soap Opera allows you to imagine a world in which characters interact in dramatic and self indulgent ways. Characters are connected through conflict, through love, in joy and in rage. All characters in soap operas have an ally and an enemy.
Soap Operas exist in a world that centers on its people. This world can be a small town, a hospital, a school or even a vampire lair.
PROJECT: Create a world and identify the characters who inhabit it. Storyboard what happens. In 20 shots exactly craft an episode of high drama and indulgent emotion.
Find your inner soap star.
