Last night we had our script reading for the summer production. We got 10 wonderful scripts by Women In Cinema members, Brittany Reeber, Alex Thomas, Malina Panovich, Katy Poulter, Catherine Jackson, Jing Yang, Carlyn Hudson, Megan Cardwell, Sarah Gonzalez, and Iris Blackbur. Unfortunately because of time, all we did was read each script. All the people who submitted scripts and the Women in Cinema officers will now vote on their favorites and the top three scripts will get workshopped on March 29th. After the workshop, Women In Cinema Officers will pick the best script for the summer production.
It's all very exciting. Please join Women In Cinema for the script workshop on March 29th. Be a part of the pre-production process.
