About the Workshop:

This one-day intensive workshop will examine the process of consulting for locally-based scriptwriters with existing projects in development. Leading with a particular emphasis on incorporating actors as a critical part of a project’s development, the workshop will

feature a case-study highlight to encourage an in-depth look at the rewriting and revision process---and to ask, what changes for the writer when work is read aloud?

Examining techniques to approach broad-based issues such as character veracity, scene building, and dialogue, the workshop will enable participants to experience their work anew.

Target Audience: Directors, Producers, Film Students, Screenwriters, Impact Producers
Notes: Workshop Participant Number up to 12
