WE WANT YOU TO WRITE OUR NEXT 546 PRODUCTION!

THINKING OF SUBMITTING A SCRIPT FOR POSSIBLE 546 PRODUCTION? 

PLEASE NOTE: THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING SHORT SCREENPLAYS FOR 546 SPRING 2018 PRODUCTION IS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 23rd.

Don't miss this chance to see your screenplay fully realized on screen. A 546 production is a great hands-on working experience and a real opportunity to experience the entire production process from the writer's POV. As many of you know, CTPR 546 is unusual among production courses as 546 directors do not write their own scripts, but instead collaborate with a writer on a work that the writer created.

We are looking for simple stories, well told, rich in character and memorable in effect. It's our objective to produce short films that can be made without compromise - fully realized films that would not be improved with a greater budget, different casting, or a longer screen time - and you should take that into consideration in selecting work to submit. 

  • You may submit a maximum of two screenplays. 
  • Submitted screenplays may be no longer than ten (10) properly formatted pages. 
  • You do NOT need to enroll in the class to participate.

Copies of the complete 546 Submission Guidelines will be available soon on the SCA Community website, in the Writing Division office, and in SPO. Please read these Guidelines carefully for important instructions before submitting your screenplay.

546 WRITING WORKSHOP

If you're interested in writing a short screenplay for possible 546 production in the Spring of 2018, you are invited to attend a 546 Screenwriting Workshop to learn more about what's involved. We’ll discuss strategies for writing a successful 546 screenplay (and some things to avoid), screen some recent 546 films, and answer your questions about CTPR 546 and the script submission process.

The workshop will be offered twice (both are the same and will run a little over an hour):

5pm on Thursday, October 5th, in SCA 204
AND
5pm on Friday, October 6th, in SCA 204

Mark your calendars! ALL SCA MFA students are invited to attend. 

PLEASE NOTE: THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING SHORT SCREENPLAYS FOR 546 SPRING 2017 PRODUCTION IS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 22ND.
