About Alyssa Roehrenbeck
Alyssa is a get-shit-done type person with a fun loving, goofy side. She believes strongly in working hard and playing hard – at the same time.
As an Actress and Producer, she began at a young age by adapting and organizing neighborhood plays based on the popular American Girls collection (yes, really). She and her pals rehearsed, constructed hodge-podge costumes and then charged parents for admission and popcorn.
After graduating from studies in Theater and Business, she’s developed her skills as not only a writer and actress, but as a smart and fearless Producer. She has Produced feature films like Here Awhile (starring Anna Camp, Steven Strait, Joe Lo Truglio), Seaside (starring Tony-noiminated Ariana DeBose), documentary work for Cartoon Network, Misfits (starring Paige McKenzie) for Disney’s Free Period, and loads viral web content like The Drunk Show, #Unpresidented, Mad House and more.
About Willamette Writers and FiLMLaBtv
Willamette Writers, a Pacific Northwest Writer’s Organization, is launching FiLMLaBtv: a web series script to screen competition that is open to all screenwriters.
Writers will submit their seven page web series pilots with 1-4 speaking characters. The pilots should have a fully developed story (a beginning, a middle, and an end), lead into the following episode, and be aimed at a general audience.
Industry professionals will choose nine finalists and one grand prize winner to join the Writer’s Room led by showrunner FJ Pratt. You know Pratt from series like Ellen, Frasier, and Sullivan and Son. The writers will sit down with Pratt and hash out the pilot over a long weekend. They will participate in a table read with trained professionals, and then they will take the web series into production.
With the help of a director, producer, and the writing team, the pilot of the web series will be shot in Portland, Oregon. In the end, the winner of the competition will have a produced film to their name, and everyone in the Writer’s Room will walk away with an IMDB credit, and an experience they will never forget.
