Film School Gumbo

I just finished up a three week screenwriting/directing intensive in Seattle and I’ll boil it all down into an informal report when I return. I encourage anyone interested in storytelling to come sponge up the residue. Sharing what I learned will give me a chance to cement some of my knowledge and pass it on to anyone else who might be interested. The informal lecture will take place on Tuesday, June 6th at 6:00pm.

Also if there are any film school students returning to Juneau who want to share their experience please contact me. Bryce? Patty?


I look forward to getting back to Juneau, hope you’re all well!
