Orlando FWA Meeting – Wed., April 3rd at 6:30pm

Let’s Talk About the Movies

“I have this idea that would make a GREAT movie!”

“I hear that a lot,” says Jennie Jarvis, script analyst and former development assistant, “but sadly, most of the people who wind up saying it have no idea how to get that idea onto the screen.”

Jarvis has designed a workshop to take away some of the mysteries of the film industry in order to help your epic idea get turned into a movie. You will learn the difference between film and novel writing and the correct format for writing for film. Come prepared with lots of questions.

Join us Wednesday, April 3, 2013 at 6:30 pm. The meeting is free and open to the public. Contact Rik Feeney at Rik@PublishingSuccessOnline.com.
