Objective

This independent film lab will provide a five-day long intensive in an idyllic setting in Chatham, New York, to refine and perfect your screenplay. Room and board will be included. The influence of a new generation of filmmaking, the web, the change in platform viewing, the difficulty in finding finance and the need for succinct and powerful storytellers is forcing the industry to take notice of the short film. In at least a first draft stage, screenplays will be worked on with the intention of sharpening them and making them into an eight to fifteen page short while focusing on a three-act structure. Completion could then be easily filmed and used as a trailer or final product. Each day provides work time, lab time and guest speaker. Show More
