Indie Film Track: From Script to Screen

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

All movie magic starts with a first draft and evolves into a screenplay fit for the silver screen. But, how do you get your written word to translate to the big screen? Each step of the filmmaking process adds a layer of interpretation. Come and learn how to navigate the complex process of visualizing abstract emotions into visuals and dialogue, and how to combine them into story beats that contribute to the larger story. Translating the written word into a visual story can seem scary, but don't worry, we've got your back!

Must have an AFF Producers or Conference Badge to attend.
