script 2021

It's that time of year again … our screenplay contest, where one or more scripts are chosen for production in Spring 2022's FMI302 (Narrative Production) course.  Please check out the above poster for details, and keep in mind that the scripts need to be "doable" with the resources we have available to us in that class (and adhere to COVID protocols). So … large crowds, big stunts, explosions or heavy VFX may not be the best option.

The deadline is Wednesday, Dec. 1 by 5pm, emailed to Professor Dina Fiasconaro. Feel free to contact her with any questions. Also, this contest is open to any major, so please spread the word to your friends!

Script Contest 2020

It's time to start thinking about the annual FMI screenwriting contest, where one or more scripts are chosen for production in Spring 2021's FMI302 (Narrative Production) course. 

This year the focus will be on COVID-friendly scripts. Please see the above poster for more details. 

The deadline is Wednesday, Dec. 2 by 5pm, emailed to Professor Dina Fiasconaro. Feel free to contact her with any questions.

On April 4, WIFV (Women in Film and Video) board member Kimberly Skyrme visited Dina Fiasconaro's FMI 302: Narrative Production class. They discussed the benefits and opportunities provided by a  student membership to the organization, and Ms. Skyrme also answered questions related to her expertise in casting and other aspects of filmmaking.

Call is now open for this year's script contest! Submit properly formatted scripts  (up to 12 pages) that are "shootable" (think about available resources) by November 28. The winner(s) will have his/her/their film(s) produced in FMI 302 ("Narrative Production") in the Spring 2017 semester. Contact Professor Dina Fiasconaro with questions!
