Intercut, an entertaining evening of staged readings from original scripts by aspiring screenwriters from the Department of Film & Video, performed by students from the Department of Theatre, will be presented Feb. 23 in the Eleanor Winters Art Gallery, Room 123 Winters College at 7:30pm.
This collaborative event is a valuable part of the development process, giving student screenwriters the opportunity to hone their technique, while allowing theatre students to bring their acting skills to the stage. Collaboration is crucial in screenwriting because of the intricate interplay between visual and literary qualities.
As with any kind of artist, it is invaluable to have one’s work reviewed, especially for screenwriters who are looking to refine their scripts and take them to a new level of growth. Audience feedback is invited, giving future arts and culture journalists the chance to react critically to the works-in-progress and share their impressions with their peers.
Intercut will feature dramatized excerpts from five screenplays, each about 10 to 20 minutes in length:
