Limited Capacity seats available

For decades, aspiring screenwriters broke into the entertainment business by writing a killer “spec” script. Those days are rapidly fading, even with the proliferation of online script contests. Instead, more and more writers are showcasing their talents by making a short film or web series. In this seminar screenwriter, Randall Jahnson will discuss the reasons why producing short content is fast becoming an effective and viable strategy to launch your screenwriting career.
