Step One: What do I need to bring to the workshop?
The workshop participants are invited to bring a short story idea with up to three characters and spanning two scenes (can be part of a current film project) to the workshop.
Step Two: What is the Workshop Program over the two-days?
Each story will then be pitched to the group. The group will discuss and select one story to develop during the workshop and turn that into a filmed project.
