Normally I review horror stories, and this actually qualifies. It is ‘The Screenwriting Workshop’ and it was created by one of my students in the now defunct Milton Park screenwriting class (gotta love when ‘new management’ comes in and cans everyone whilst also single handedly bending the community over for more money). It is a quick short that addresses a few issues. If I had to logline this something like, ‘It’s a story about a guy who has hit artistically/career rock bottom and his struggle with himself and getting back into the industry.’ conversely it is also a ‘story about a woman who is trying to learn screenwriting but has to confront stereotypes and sexual assault that is rampant in the industry.’
Without any further ado, I bring you Jean-Pierre Huot’s film, ‘The Screenwriting Workshop’.
