How would you describe your current knowledge and skills (screenwriting, acting, or other)? [We read all responses. Please put a little effort into it. =)]

I'm a decent copywriter (took a class in undergrad and loved it) Not too familiar with the screenplay format, but I'm learning more an more on my own everyday that's why I NEED to be in this group. As far as acting goes I'm a novice at the moment. However, I was a theatre major in college so I'm not a complete rookie but there's a lot of polishing that needs to be done.

Which genres are you particularly interested in? (e.g. comedy, drama, science fiction, etc.)

Comedy and drama.

What are a few of your favorite movies, TV shows, books, or other inspirations? (List at least ONE by name.)

The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Revenge, Pulp Fiction and Carlitos Way.

Do you hope to have any of your material read or critiqued by the group?

Not at the moment. I have a bunch of wavering ideas right now; a lot of treatments, and undeveloped characters.

Why are you interested in joining this screenwriting group? What are you hoping for?

I absolutely LOVE to write and create. My goals are to be an all around filmmaker but I realized a long time ago that if there's no story then you have no project. This notion was reaffirmed for me last Thursday when I listened to a guest speaker on a panel talk about this group. So I'm hoping to network with the right people, gain some proper knowledge without having to sift through all the garbage on the internet (AT LEAST NOT AS MUCH) and just create my way.

Introduction

I've been in Atlanta for about 8 years now. I love ALL facets of entertainment! Acting , writing, production all of it. I've finally scored a decent entry level job production wise. Now it's time to hone everything else.
