Screenwriting from the Fringes Workshop with Girls & Gear’s April Dobbins

The RQ Writing Academy presents: “Screenwriting from the Fringes” with filmmaker and artist April Dobbins, November 5th @ O Cinema Wynwood from 10 am – 1pm.

Have you always wanted to write a film script, but have no idea where to begin? Are you an artist who would like to segue into motion pictures? This workshop is for those who dream of the big screen.

Participants will receive a crash course in script formatting and character development with a particular focus on characters from groups who are often underrepresented and/or misrepresented in Hollywood. We will briefly read, watch, and discuss a few scenes from popular films, reengineer those scenes, and begin work on an original short screenplay. 

Participants will also learn about the technical and organizational resources that are available to do script breakdowns, shot lists, and storyboards. This section of the workshop will demystify the process of producing and AD’ing a film. 

This workshop is in collaboration with Girls & Gear—a film initiative that aims to diversify the film industry at every level.
