Learn the best practices for recording vocals and building a soundscape to add to your audio-adventure. All levels of experience welcome!


Film Discussion Group

April 18, 2017

Held every third Tuesday of the month!

This group is meant for anyone interested in analyzing films in an open and friendly space. We will prepare a topic to discuss each month and gain a better understanding of different elements of filmmaking. By watching clips from different films, we will explore what has been done really well (or perhaps what hasn't) and examine why something works or doesn't. Local filmmakers are also invited to use this group to screen their short film and optionally open it to a constructive discussion.

This month's topic: Color in Film


Screenwriting Group

April 25, 2017

Held every fourth Tuesday of the month!

Writing is hard, but we want to help! This screenwriting group is meant to serve local screenwriters who want support. The group is open to all writing levels, and we encourage anyone to join. We will offer time for table reads to workshop member's screenplays, helping the writer work through dialogue and story development. We will also plan discussions about various writing aspects including, structure, formatting, keeping on schedule, defeating writer's block, character development, and more.
