Classes with Sorkin and Zimmer are what you'd expect.

"The worst crime you can commit is telling the audience something they already know."


Dialogue should sound like music. 

I like these. They're simple, and I'm pretty jacked on hearing more (no, this isn't a commercial and no one is paying me to write this, unfortunately). Several times, over the past few weeks, adds for MastersClass has crept onto my computer screen, and just yesterday, I finally bit on it.

I'm glad I did. Even though I'm not paying for a single class - not yet, anyway.

Just browsing through the trailers and teasers is enough for now, because that don't cast a thing! And there's plenty of small nuggets in each of the forty second-ish clips. Like this one, from my one of my favorite film score producers, Hans Zimmer:

Music is a conversation, and anyone can have it, we just need to break through the myth that tells us otherwise. Pretty brilliant, Mr. Zimmer. Pretty brilliant.

Masterclass has classes on singing, cooking, writing, stand up comedy, architecture, sports, and many, many others. Check it out. You won't be disappointed.

And if you decide to order a class, let me know. I'd love to hear about it.
