At the ‘She Called Action’ 35 Pilot Table Read Contest
My Second-year MFA candidate Randi Barros and I spent the morning on set at the Manhattan Beach Studios watching a filmed table read of Barros’ script “Springtime in September.” A winner of this year’s ‘She Called Action’ 35 Pilot Table Read Contest, the script concerns a suddenly single mother dealing with dating in the new era.
This “She Called Action” event was created by Cheryl Rodes of the women-owned production company Rodes Unpaved, dedicated to putting women as the heroes of the story.
That’s something the Stephens College MFA in TV and Screenwriting can certainly support!

Stephens College at Denver Pop Culture Con
One of the fun-nest things about many fun things at the Denver PopCon was the chance to see Stephens College film professor (and MFA alum) Chase Thompson debut his film Tampsen Air. He shared fascinating stories about the concept and the production work in the film with the audience- and the various other Screenwriting MFA alums who came out to show their support.

Standing in James Herriot’s Kitchen and looking out into the garden
James Herriot is one of my favorite writers and I love the BBC television adaptations of the stories, too.
Back in 2016 we visited his hometown of Thirsk in Yorkshire and this amazing museum.

“If mentioned in television histories at all, The Monkees were seen as the bastard child when discussing counter-culture humor in 1960s television, behind Laugh-In and The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, yet they prefigured and influenced both of those programs.”
