Short Film Writing Workshop

Writing a successful short film will be the subject of “SHORT-sighted,” a 3-hour intensive workshop being offered this Saturday, February 16 (and again on the 23rd), by pro screenwriter Randall Jahnson (The Doors, The Mask of Zorro).

The seminar will focus on how to meet the unique storytelling challenges of the short format – just in time for the 2013 Willamette Writers FilmLab’s Script-to- Screen Short Film Scriptwriting Competition!

POV Workshop at WWC

Randall Jahnson will be leading a workshop entitled “It Depends on Your Point of View: Effective Uses of POV in Screenwriting” at the 2012 Willamette Writers Conference in the Sheraton Airport Hotel in Portland, Oregon.

Jahnson will discuss how making the right POV choices can transform a mediocre plot into compelling drama. Citing examples from “Rear Window,” “A Beautiful Mind,” and “Chronicle,” he will show how a limited or altered POV can create unforgettable cinematic experiences.

The POV workshop will held at 8:30 a.m. Friday, August 3rd.

Jahnson will also participate in the Sunday afternoon panel discussion, “Short Film: Why It’s Hot.”
