Sat. 16th, 2019 - REGULAR MEETING

12:30-2:30 p.m. at ACS*


A. The SCI-FI Genre. We'll talk about writing science fiction, of course! This will include a presentation by Ian Eskander, who is Head of Feature and TV Development at Escape Velocity Content in LA. He will show his recently premiered Star Wars fan film short, "Birth of a Monster" and provide an inside look at the process behind developing and writing the shooting script. 

B. 60-Second-Pitch - We close our meeting with an optional, fun, and casual chance to practice a quick pitch and get feedback. Give it a whirl!

*Alamo City Studios, 1113 E. Houston St. San Antonio

Please note: Our monthly meetings have moved to the third Saturday of each month.

Learning basic knowledge of the craft and continually improving your skills is encouraged. We focus our free workshops on both basic and advanced level skills. We expect members to attend, participate in the activities and give to others, as much as they receive.  We are a collaborative group who share ideas freely, investigate to learn and take turns teaching each other what we know.
