Looking at creativity through comedies: Sharing session on making comedies and its processes

The talk will be using Clifton’s experience in these film productions to analyze the characteristics of comedies, its underlying methods, the inspirations and conceptualization of comedies, how the comedies attract and captivate the audiences, the theory of “logical scenario but with surprising twists” and how such a creative principle is employed.
