Screenplay Writing and Production

Start to Finish

We are excited to offer this pair of informative and fun classes for writers, actors, producers and creativeís in the story telling genre. Ever thought I would love to tell my story in a film or web series with my own screenplay? Have you wondered what really goes into bringing a story to life from concept to finished product to marketing to the general public!

In this set of classes we will take you on a journey of learning the ins and outs of creating and completing a screenplay.

Once we have written the screenplay we will then move forward and actually create a short 3 to 5 minute film to be screened at the Actors Gym Studio on the final day.

Whether you attend just the writing segment, the production segment or both it is guaranteed to be incredibly informative and enriching to anyone who participates!

Sponsored by Reel Acting Solutions in association with New Wind Productions and Letís Do This Productions Known for such work as  web series, Gossiping Grams and Pleading Sanity, Diogenes the Vlog as well as such short films as Big City, Small World, Misadventures of Being Single and Into The Darkness to name a few.
