How to Glue People to the Screen

with Yasemin Samdereli and Fredrik Bond

Dialogue, casting, delivery and timing are all essential to pulling off a joke, but how does a director work with his team to pull all these elements together? Through selected scenes from films, screenwriters and directors discuss how they develop their funny ideas during the writing process or when working with actors, what the parameters of good taste are, what makes comedy universal, or why some jokes are culturally specific.
