7:00pm - All Ages Buy Tickets

Gateway Film Center (map)

Columbus, Ohio, USA 43215
Other Info
This is a documentary film about competing social classes, sports and ambitious kids from opposite sides of the track. It’s a film about injuries, victories and opportunities and measuring up to the status quo. It just happens to be about high school football and it just happens to be set in Maine. It is the tale of two communities, one white collar and one blue, united by a common dream: winning the State Championship. The physical conflict takes place on the playing field, but the real story is how these two communities see themselves and what they teach their kids about the game of life, the pride of place, the passion of tradition and the careful balance between success and respect.

Script to Screen: The Art of Visual Storytelling

This workshop is sold out.

Scripts are where the written word and performance meet. Whether fictional or factual, screenplays are a form of art with unique demands, but also tremendous creative freedom. Not every great story results in a great script, nor does every great script make it to screen.

Explore the techniques professionals use to tell their stories through an interactive discussion on common myths and misperceptions about the process of taking a screenplay to production. Learn to balance plot advancement with character development and craft scripts that will draw the attention of prospective filmmakers. If you’re new to screenwriting or just looking to hone your existing skills, don’t miss this overview of the art of storytelling for motion pictures and television. Even those just interested in the screenwriting process will find a new appreciation for film and the challenges of going from script to screen.


Instructor:
J.R. McMillan

J.R. McMillan is a script consultant with Mojofilter, providing the promotional experience and industry expertise necessary to go from rough concepts to marketable screenplays. McMillan has a BA from Marshall University with a concentration in Journalism and Mass Communications and has worked as an editor, opinion writer, columnist, photographer, publicist and public radio producer.
