Faculty Spotlight: Charles Evered

Home/Faculty News, Program News, Residency/Faculty Spotlight: Charles Evered

We’re taking a look at the faculty of UCR’s Low Residency MFA every day through February 1st, our upcoming application deadline…and today it’s playwright and screenwriter professor Charles Evered. Here, in a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, Charles talks about the state of violence in modern American cinema:

Which scene is harder to write? A bullet-through-an-eyeball scene or a scene in which nothing appears to be happening, but the audience—holding its breath in anticipation—knows that everything is happening, because a skilled and thoughtful writer or filmmaker knew how to make the audience’s imagination a partner in the entertainment, rather than just a passive repository of it?

 

And in this interview with the New York Tiimes, he talks about some of his mentors, too.
