Filmmaker Fusion - Translating Stories to Screen

Coming June 19th! What is Filmmaker Fusion? Filmmaker networking with a purpose! Making professional contacts, referring and recommending fellow filmmakers, meeting new people and learning about a hot topic from a panel of industry professionals. The third Wednesday of the month, most months.

June 19, 2013 is the next in the monthly series called Filmmaker Fusion, hosted by 2012 Arizona Filmmaker of the Year Diane M. Dresback. June’s meeting will feature the topic “Translating Stories to Screen” and will feature local experts discussing things such as how to ensure a director sees your vision in a script and the role of a writer after the director accepts a script. Come find out answers to important questions such as,

"What is the relationship between directors and writers...from both perspectives?"

“How do I know if my script will translate well to the screen?"

“Are rewrite's necessary?”

Bring your questions and talk to our panelists! AND...bring your business cards for networking with others in the local filmmaking industry and a door prize. Although you DO NOT need to be an IFP Member to attend any Filmmaker Fusion events, if you are an IFP Member, bring your IFP Membership card for a chance to win a special gift card!
