Film 310 - Class Introduction

Who am I?

  • Start as a writer
  • 15 years
  • Industry: television and movies
  • SaskFilm: the industry boom
  • Masters and the major industry change
  • Selling scripts and stories

Teaching for me is a way to help others to not block, to write, be creative, and do what they enjoy.

My philosophy about this class

  • I want you to succeed.
  • Lines of communication are important.
  • I'm here to help build your skills. I'm not worrying about your creativity.
  • I believe you’re your own best teacher.
  • Story is story is story.
  • Formatting is only half the journey. The priority is learning the structure of story.
  • Talent takes you only so far. You need to build skill.
  • We get better through time, work, and practice — not just through theory and discussion.
  • Try to focus on the practice of developing your skills, and less on the outcome.
  • Writing blocks are just fear.
  • Sharing and feedback is good.
  • Having an opposing viewpoint with the instructor in discussion is good.
