Finished films will screen at a special event produced by Low Key Arts, as well as at Arkansas Shorts in January 2020.

Classes will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-8 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost is $300; space is limited.

A Script Writing Master Class will be taught by Samuel Brett Williams, a playwright, screenwriter, and director. He is a past winner of the Helen Merrill Emerging Playwright Award. For television, Williams developed an original pilot (with Ryan O'Nan) for 26 Keys Productions and he has worked on various shows for Hot Snakes Media. In film, Williams has written screenplays for Aeroplano, Naked Faith Entertainment, and Character Brigade Productions. He is currently an assistant professor at California State University, Sacramento.

Screenwriting lecture classes are spent learning the fundamentals of writing for the screen such as pitches, outlines, treatments, notecards, and then screenplay pages. Participants will prepare a short film script that they will then learn how to produce themselves.

A Cinematography & Producing And Editing Master Class will be taught by Chris Churchill, a cinematographer, writer, director and editor whose work has screened in over 50 film festivals around the world. He is an active member of the Arkansas film community and is an assistant professor of Film at the University of Central Arkansas where he teaches cinematography, film production, and visual effects.

Production Lecture classes are spent learning filmmaking fundamentals such as directing, producing, cinematography and editing. Participants are expected to work on small crews for one another, giving each filmmaker an opportunity not only to write and direct their own film but also practice production roles such as cinematographer, producer, first assistant director, sound recorder or production designer.
