Friday, September 27 - Exclusive Teen Session
"How to Write a Ten-Minute Film"
Taught by Ricky Roxburgh
Ricky will be leading students on a crash course in screenwriting for the large and small screen. He will discuss the basics of building a story, developing characters, constructing a plot that works — and then he will walk students through his personal approach to writing scripts. By the time they leave, students will know everything they need to know to outline a ten-minute movie based on a story they’ve developed during the workshop. And it doesn’t end there! Finished scripts will be turned in for judging and one student’s short film will be chosen to be made and shown at the SLO Film Festival.
