Are you ready for part two of our FiLMLaB workshop series?
Then you’ve come to the right place. Whether you are a novelist or a screenwriter, writing visually is an important technique to have in your writer’s toolbox.
When you are writing for short films, like the Willamette Writers FiLMLaB Contest, writing visually can make or break your seven page script. Screenwriter and FiLMLaB Mentor-In-Chief Randall Jahnson explains the techniques and tricks of writing visually that will help you economize language while layering meaning, power and subtext into your work.
Get ready to work! This workshop will be fun, informative, and full of tips and tricks to make your writing shine.
