You’ll also be developing your own ideas. You’ll be paired up with a Hollywood screenwriter who will assist you in telling the story that you’ve been thinking about for years. You’ll also be matched with two mentors and an editor.

By the time this program ends you’ll have numerous industry contacts. You’ll be on your way to a bright and shinning future in the film industry.
