short film screenwriting

Have an idea for your own short film? Join award-winning filmmaker, screenwriter, and media coach Mark J. Parker to bring your vision to life via text. From the outline of your original short film to the first 2 pages, writers will strengthen not only their idea and their formatting, but their ability to write dialogue,
descriptions, and conflict. All participants should have a short film idea that they are comfortable describing and should be prepared for some brainstorming and writing both in class and at home between sessions. No actual filming will take place in this workshop. Bringing a laptop or tablet with keyboard to class is
necessary. Both beginners and experienced writers are welcome.

on-camera comedy acting

Need a laugh? Join acting coach, casting director, and award-winning filmmaker Mark J. Parker for a fun and informative class about acting for on-camera comedy. The techniques taught in this workshop will be different from stage acting, as actors will try to ground their acting in natural, truthful performances while hitting their mark for the camera. The group will work on improv exercises that stretch their imaginations, emotional range, and comedy timing, plus will work on two age-appropriate scenes from film and TV in the comedy genre. Memorizing the scenes for week 2 is necessary, and actors will be recorded on
camera so they can watch their work. Both beginners and experienced actors are welcome.

Instructor: Mark Parker
Who: Ages 12-17 | Waiver must be signed by parent/guardian at the first class for permission to recorded on camera
When: Wednesdays, 5:30-6:45pm, March 23 & 30
