deadCenter Film to host Free Screenwriting Seminar

deadCenter Film is hosting a free screenwriting seminar on Saturday, November 19, at StarSpace46, 1141 W Sheridan Avenue, downtown Oklahoma City.

The public seminar is open to all ages and experience levels from 9:00am – 12:00pm. Hollywood television writer Matt Payne will lead the sessions and screenwriters Casey Twenter and Jeff Robison will offer a keynote address followed by a Q&A.

Payne will also lead a private screenwriting workshop from 12:30pm – 5:30pm for 12 selected screenwriters. Writers interested in attending the private session need to submit a feature length screenplay by Saturday, November 5.

Registration for both sessions is free at www.deadcenterfilm.org/screenwriting-seminar.

deadCenter film is partnering with Oklahoma City University and the Oklahoma Film + Music office to offer this screenwriting program free of charge to all interested screenwriters.

Matt Payne will lead the screenplay seminar. Payne worked in Hollywood for fifteen years, starting in production on Fox’s massive television hit 24, moving into talent management at William Morris Endeavor, working for show runners on the CBS hit Without a Trace, and ultimately writing television episodes for The Defenders, Vegas, and Memphis Beat. Payne currently runs The Point Writer’s Workshop in Oklahoma City and serves as an adjunct professor of writing and film at OCU.

Oklahoma filmmakers Casey Twenter and Jeff Robison will offer a keynote address at the seminar. Twenter and Robison wrote and produced the Sundance smash Rudderless with William H. Macy, The Jogger, The Scent of Rain and Lightning, and the recent Verizon television series, In the Rough.
