FILMLab Workshop

January 10, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm


If you’re scratching your head, wondering how to get started with a short film script, join us the following Saturday, January 10th, for a two-hour workshop with director Martin Vavra, Jon Dragt and screenwriter Randall Jahnson. This is your chance to explore short script writing and short film structure with two of the Pacific Northwest’s filmmaking luminaries.

What are the fundamental differences between a feature length script and a short script, aside from the obvious page count?

Veteran screenwriter, teacher and producer, Randall Jahnson (The Doors, Mask of Zorro), is going to tap his storytelling experience to assist Willamette Writers members in learning the fundamental rules of short script writing and how to avoid common pitfalls.

Martin Vavra will share his behind-the-camera experience as a director, producer and editor to provide a nuts and bolts perspective on what happens to a script when it leaves the writer’s hands and enters production.

Winning 2014 screenwriter, Jon Dragt, and FiLMLaB executive producer, Ruth Witteried will be on hand to answer questions about the contest and, yes, you do get a credit in IMDb if your script wins.

Location: Robinwood Station (3706 Cedaroak Drive, West Linn)

Time: 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. See http://www.robinwoodstation.org/ for more information.

Registration for WW members is $15 and $20 for non-members. Watch the weekly announcements for additional details, or follow the news at willamettewriters.com.
