In Development--Sunday for writers, actors and directors

If you find yourself in, or can get yourself to Yarmouth on Cape Cod tomorrow and are into the whole creative process of writing and putting the product on film, you might want to check out In Development.

I got the word from Jenn Pierce who now lives in Sandwich but a few years back directed me in To Kill a Mockingbird out with the Wellesley Players. Jenn is a spirited, thoughtful, creative individual--here's her blog--and the second day of the workshop is open to the public, so it might be worth checking out what Jenn and her merry band of film making pranksters come up with.

Performance artist/filmmaker/painter--is there more?--Micheal Ornstein is part of this creative endeavor, and while I've never met him--hopefully some day I'd like to write about him--I get the sense that whatever he puts his mind and hand to comes out worth noting.

Here's the info from In Development's FaceBook page:

In celebration of Cape Cod's vibrant film, writing and acting scene, a group of writers, actors and directors have come together to form In Development! The group's inaugural workshop will feature actors working closely with directors on first-time readings of original film scripts by Cape-based writers. The workshop's second day is open to anyone interested in a glimpse behind the scenes, into the guts of how writers, directors and actors come together to develop projects. The audience will be encouraged to ask questions and participate in various ways. Refreshments will be served. The event is free with a $5 suggested donation for the Sunday matinee to help defray expenses.

Anyone interested in participating should contact Guy Taylor at A.S Films International, a sponsor of the event, at (508) 776-3283 or email
