Off To Screenwriting Research Network Conference in Porto, Portugal

September 9th, 2019 No comments

Porto main

Posting here might be a bit light over the next week as Rosanne and I head to Porto, Portugal for the annual Screenwriting Research Network Conference. This conference has become our yearly excuse for travel and has taken us to Leeds, UK, Wellington and Dunedin, New Zealand, Milano, Italy and now, Porto. Even though I am not actually part of the conference, it is always a great time as we explore a new country and re-engage with all the friends we have made from SRN. If you are a screenwriter, I would highly recommend you check out the group and these annual conferences.

While I record Rosanne’s presentations during the conference, I often have 1 or 2 free days on my own to explore and photograph the area. If you follow my Instagram account you know that I often have hundreds of photos from each location and slowly roll them out over the reset of the year. I expect Porto to be much the same. I have already done my usually explorations via Google Maps and found a number of interesting gardens and sites to visit. I wish I had more Portuguese language in my head, but right now it looks like Google Translate will be a very close companion during our 5 days.

My Citizen Jane Film Festival Day 1 Re-Cap

October 31st, 2017 Comments off

I worked as a volunteer social media reporter for the Citizen Jane Film Festival last weekend and here is a clip and link to my Day 1 re-Cap posted on their blog. — Douglas

I must admit I am a little bleary-eyed as I type, but it is all because my day at the Citizen Jane Film Festival was full to the brim with great people, great experiences, and great information. While films are certainly the focus of Citizen Jane, the CJ Film School day was all about learning.Screen Grab: From Screenplay To Big Screen, Who Will Win?

The morning started with “Screen Grab,” during which 5 screenwriting finalists were selected to give their pitches for 5-minute films to a panel of filmmaking experts, including Sarah Haas, Steph Scupham, Kimberly Skyrme and Ken LaZebnik, Director of the Stephens College MFA in Screenwriting program which operates out of Los Angeles. The winner of Screen Grab will have their film produced, receive a $250 award, and also receive a table read by the local Greenhouse Theatre Project on the last day of the Festival.

Bold Brash Words From Bold Brash Screenwriters

The final session of CJ Film School had Dr. Rosanne Welch, Professor of Screenwriting History for the Stephens College MFA in Screenwriting, host 6 of her current and former students as they presented short profiles of various female screenwriters. Too often the history and careers of screenwriters, especially women, are lost in the passage of time. As part of class, each student selects a woman screenwriter and develops a paper and presentation highlighting their career. This is the second year MFA students have participated at Citizen Jane.
