ANNUAL MEMBERS MEETING : Selling Minnesota
Minnesota born screenwriter Brent Boyd will keynote the Screenwriters’ Workshop Annual Members meeting. The Forrest Lake native Boyd’s fall release of AURORA BOREALIS sees the arrival on the screen of a truly Minnesota themed film with Donald Sutherland, Juliette Lewis, Joshua Jackson, and Louise Fletcher leading the cast.
Boyd’s first feature script produced is riddled with distinctly Minnesota lines such as “Holy Hrbek!” and a Minneapolitan saying “St. Paul? Never heard of it…” Boyd’s script explores the contours of the understated “Minnesota-guy” personality with all its emotional loopholes. Boyd says, the more specific you make your script to a time and place the more universal it becomes to viewers.
Also, members attending will hear all about the new ScreenLabs challenge to make dramatic films in the workshop setting. An all new concept and guidelines will be announced for the 2006-2007 ScreenLabs challenge. Members of the workshop will also demonstrate script groups, Second Tuesday, and ScriptNight development series of programs.
