Set Etiquette Workshop with Dan Miller 5/16

View More >

Whether it’s a commercial or low-budget indie film shoot, the production set is active, fast-paced, and highly collaborative. Like any busy workplace, safety is key, but on a set it must be a top priority. Combining electricity, rigging, camera, and audio can spell trouble if people don’t communicate effectively and follow certain universal procedures. In this workshop you’ll learn about various crew positions and responsibilities, and important rules of set etiquette that will guarantee a successful shoot.

Dan Miller has worked as a freelance lighting technician for the past 16 years. He has worked in the grip and electric lighting departments on movies, commercials, sporting and special events. Dan worked at the local ABC affiliate in Cedar Rapids, IA, directing the morning and noon news during the day, and shooting and editing video at the local cable operations at night. After moving to the Twin Cities, Dan spent five years at small ad agency shooting broadcast spots, corporate video, and business theater work before going freelance.

National Sitcom Writing Contest

View More >

Are you a closet Sitcom writer in a 9-5 job, a college kid with a cool idea, a mom with a knack for writing killer dialogue, or maybe even a professional writer looking for a break? Regardless of who you are, the 2015 National Sitcom.com Writing Competition --- www.sitcomcontest.com -- is looking for a few good scripts to be reviewed by Hollywood executives, with the potential to be developed for production.

The competition is open in two categories although three awards will be given, which include cash prizes and winning scripts that will be shared with Hollywood execs (see highlighted text below) for possible development:

·         Scripts for an Original Pilot  ($250)

·         Scripts for Existing Shows ($250)

·         Best Overall Script ($500)

The 2015 National Sitcom.com Writing Competition opens March 1, 2015 and closes June 30, 2015.  Registrations can be made at www.sitcomcontest.com.

A special script-writing workshop/webinar will take place May 16 (check website for times) with veteran writers Bo Kaprall and stand-up comedian and writer Scott Hansen. Kaprall's credits include writing for  "Saturday Night Live" and writing and producing shows like "Laverne & Shirley," "Welcome Back Kotter" and many others.  Kaprall is also the Creator and Executive Producer of a new  TV series called "Outlaw Country," debuting February 24 on the WGN America. Hansen has written for Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Louie Anderson, Tom Arnold, Roseanne Barr and others, plus appeared on HBO, Showtime, E and PBS.

All entrants will also have the opportunity to get their work critiqued by well known working writers and producers, attend a professional sitcom writing workshop and have their submissions read by studio executives and producersincluding Emmy Award Winners Louie Anderson, Jeff Cesario, Elaine Ko, Supervising Producer for "Modern Family," and Jonathan Collier, Executive Producer for "Bones," ""Monk," "The Simpsons" and "King of the Hill."

Entertainment Industry Always Looking for New Talent, Hot Scripts

"The National Sitcom Writing Competition is an excellent opportunity for students, professional writers and others to develop their funny stories, ideas, and life experiences into a pilot for a new television series or for an existing TV sitcom," Kaprall notes. "The industry is always looking for new talent and fresh ideas and the Sitcom.com Writing Competition is an effective way to get an inside track. In fact, two 'spec scripts' were just recently picked up by Sony TV by writers who were previously unknown. "

Read the whole story here: http://deadline.com/2014/11/grandma-dearest-comedy-spec-season-1201289691/

Past Sitcom Winners Found Experience Invaluable

Winners from the first Sitcom contest expressed their thoughts on how valuable the experience was -- and where it might lead:

"The chance to be a part of the contest was a unique and thrilling experience.  I took part in the writing workshop with Bo and Scott, and I can honestly say I wouldn't have won had it not been for their expert tutelage in regards to properly crafting a script," said Alex Walker, a Minneapolis writer who submitted the First Place work titled "Grow Up."  "They also don't sugarcoat anything -- they tell you exactly what it takes to write a good script in addition to what it takes to make it as a scriptwriter.  I received critiques from Hollywood executives regarding my script, and was even offered help in finding an agent. "

 

"It was lots of fun to have a table read and meet other screenwriters," noted Iowa-based writer Spencer Loucks, who wrote the Second Place script "Fathers," while Andrea Elizabeth Gardner, co-writing with Amanda Dawn Jacobson,  found the table read of the top three winning submissions -- including theirs', "Halloqueens" -- invaluable. Both were from the Twin Cities.

 

"The table read allowed us to see what worked and didn't work with our script. Seeing our characters come to life also gave us the confidence to pursue taking all of our projects to the next level. It may not be the easiest road to travel, but we now know we have what it takes to make it," Gardner emphasized.

 

"The competition is a terrific opportunity to discover if you have the gumption, passion, and talent to make it as a scriptwriter," Walker summarized -- "without having to move to LA to find out."
