Fall 08 ATLFF 365 Workshops Abound

Fall is in the air and school is back in session so it's a great time to take a film workshop or two! Some of our most popular workshops are back including the complete Screenwriting 101-103 series. Weekend Filmmaking, and Intro To Directing, Part I and II.

We also have some great NEW classes- Outside The Box:Creative Funding & Marketing For Your Indie Film, and Improv Acting For Film & Television, to name a few.

We also have partnered with Georgia State University to offer our members 10% discount for a new workshop they are presenting this Fall, Basic Gaffing & Gripping For The Beginner. This special workshop has certification eligibility for those who take it to provide a "leg up" in starting your production career in the local film industry! And... you can register conveniently through our website for this workshop.

I would like to take a moment and spotlight our first workshop of the season that anyone who has always wanted to write a script should take...Screenwriting 101. I cannot say enough about this class and our great Instructors (for ALL our workshops), and Jenna Milly, who is one of our Screenwriting Instructors (who also teaches at Emory and writes a column called "Scene Fix" for Script Magazine) is no exception! What her bio may not convey is her great rapport with her students and her comprehensive teaching style. Based on our feedback we have received from students who have taken her class, if this were The Olympics, she would definitely get the gold medal! In my opinion, there is no better workshop offered for the price and evening convenience in Atlanta for anyone who is a complete screenwriting beginner. Note- the early bird registration deadline is end of day TODAY for the best discount for this workshop! If Jenna's class does not fit in your schedule, because of the popularity of this beginning workshop, we have added an additional Screenwriting 101 workshop later in the season as well, taught by another wonderful Instructor, April Lundy. She is fairly new teaching with us but certainly not new to teaching screenwriting or new to the industry. We are already getting wonderful feedback as well on students who took her beginning screenwriting class this Summer. Check out her bio on our website to find out more about April and her workshop dates scheduled for November.

This is only a taste of many great workshops and Instructors, who I will continue to blog about throughout the Fall! I also welcome any suggestions or requests for workshops and am happy to answer any questions regarding any of the workshops available at present so feel free to email me at
