Ian Carpenter (screenwriter)

At The Dirt John Gordon dishes out some of the most impeccable, insightful, deep-diving, bang-on direction I have witnessed in my 20 years in this business. His workshop that paired working screenwriters (the people running and casting tv shows) with his own acting students was brilliant, invigorating and instructive for both writers and actors. An initiative that points to why John is one of the most exciting acting teachers out there – he’s thinking outside the box, constantly changing up his pedagogy and he works in the very trenches his students go into every day.
