Sidewalk Screenwriter’s Lab, Sidewalk’s second in a series of workshops designed to encourage and inspire independent filmmaking in Alabama will soon be accepting applications. The Sidewalk Screenwriter’s Lab, presented in collaboration with EB Productions and led by screenwriter and film executive Elizabeth Bradley (Emerging Pictures, Andrew Lauren Productions), is an intensive 7-week class focusing on the fundamentals of story structure, character development and effective dialogue. The final week of each class will feature a comprehensive discussion of the business of screenwriting at the studio and independent levels.
The Sidewalk Screenwriter’s Lab is set for two sessions – one in early summer (May 10 – June 22) and one in late summer (June 28 – August 17). Each session will offer a Level One and Level Two workshop.
Get ready for the Sidewalk iScramble for College Students.
The SCRAMBLE is a weekend filmmaking competition, brought to you by the same folks that put on the Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival. From concept to completion, teams are challenged to write, shoot and edit a short film in just one weekend. At the Kick-Off event, teams are given Inspiration Items, or fun and exciting secret ingredients that must be included in their films to ensure the film was not written or shot before the weekend.
Prizes include Apple products such as Production Suite (retail value: $1,299 ), which includes Final Cut Pro HD, DVD Studio Pro 3, and Apple Motion, the “essential software suite for film and video production that delivers real-time editing, motion graphics, audio and authoring tools in one comprehensive and integrated package.”
