Young Screenwriters' Conference at Shenandoah University - 10/12/19
Project Write, the Shenandoah Valley Writing Project, SU’s Department of Media and Communication, and Alamo Drafthouse Cinema are teaming up to bring a day of screenwriting and production workshops to the area. Comic creator and screenwriter Joe Kelly will be the keynote speaker. He is most widely known as the author of the graphic novel I Kill Giants and worked on the screenplay for the movie adaptation. He is one of the founding members of Man of Action Entertainment and has earned accolades for revitalizing the Deadpool comics. Other established filmmakers and screenwriters will be part of the instruction.
Thanks to a grant from the Marion Park Lewis Foundation for Arts we are able to offer this conference for an especially low price.
The conference for high school students and their teachers will be held on Saturday, October 12, 2019, on the campus of Shenandoah University in Henkel Hall from 9 am until 3 pm.
- Video is everywhere.
- Media literacy is a must.
- What better way to understand the genre our students marinate in than by immersing them in the writing and production?
- If you have project-based learning in your plans, include video and screenwriting support for student projects.
- Many schools are adding film programs and the conference is designed to complement them.
