BRIDGEPORT FILM FEST YOUNG WRITERS ACADEMY
February 6th-March 13th (Saturdays only)
Short films and web series have become incredible tools for filmmakers and actors to reach a broad audience while showcasing their work and artistry. Through ever evolving technology, most film projects can be completed with little to no budget.
In this 6 week workshop, students will learn foundational tools to create their own short screenplay that can be potentially filmed. Topics covered include story development, seven major plots in storytelling, group writing prompts, storyboarding, film analysis, casting and more! The Young Writers Academy is perfect for actors who seek to create their own content, or aspiring writers who are ready to bring their dreams to reality. The program will conclude with a live staged reading with professional actors. This program is open to students ages 13 through 18 and no prior experience is needed!
Workshop will be lead by actor and filmmaker Jason A. Coombs. CLICK HERE for more information about him.
