Advanced Screenwriting Camp - July 15-19
Grades 9-12 Campers will work with expert screenwriters as they explore and discuss the qualities of compelling storytelling. Participants may choose to develop their own original screenplay independently, or they may choose to collaborate with fellow campers to co-write a screenplay. Because the scripts written in this Advanced Screenwriting Camp will not be produced in a Script to Screen Production Camp, writers have more creative freedom to develop their stories in any way they choose. Campers will have the opportunity to have their scripts performed in a live table read by actors from the Alliance Theatre during the Script to Screen Film Festival.
