2017 Apollo Workshop: Storytelling in Film & TV

Description: This weekend-long workshop is completely free of charge – free tuition, free room and board. Travel stipends are also available to those attending from outside of southern California.The Apollo Workshop offers training in two critical areas of a successful career in entertainment: Storytelling Development and Career Development. Every great idea will remain just that, an idea, unless you take action by developing that idea into a great story following basic storytelling techniques that every writer in the film, television and digital world adheres to when their project is developed at any Hollywood production company, major studio and independent alike. Once you have that great idea fleshed out into a great script, you are going to need to know how to pitch it, get it produced and then distributed all while keeping your audience in mind. This workshop allows you to ask the tough questions, practice your skills at pitching, and network with other creative types. The experience is fully interactive as you collaborate intensively with your fellow participants and work directly with the faculty as you dissect various aspects of the story ideas and projects you bring in with you.

Special Skills & Requirements We workshop these ideas the first night in an interactive session on concept development. A panel of working producers, studio executives and writers provide their expert feedback one-on-one. Further sessions focus on the best way to pitch your stories (the proverbial “elevator pitch”, wherein you have about 30 seconds to wow an executive with your story). You will also trade feedback with your fellow attendees. The workshop’s other primary goal is to help attendees develop their careers. Our workshop panelists and other faculty, all currently working in Hollywood, offer nuts-and-bolts career advice attuned to the latest trends and practices in the entertainment industry. They will provide practical tips on how to get your foot in the door and how to stay there.
