2014 Residential Screenwriting Camp
Sunday, July 06, 2014, 10:00 AM to Saturday 12, 12:00 PM
Residential Camp to Commence
High school students will be able to immerse themselves in the art and craft of screenwriting and filmmaking for one exciting week each. The camps may be taken separately or together.
From July 6-12, the Screenwriting Camp with Michael Wright, Director of The University of Tulsa's Creative Writing Program, will provide an intensive exploration of the craft of screenwriting along with stimulating group activities and film screenings. Students will create their own short screenplays which will be read for family and friends in a script festival on the last day.
