Friday, October 14
 

9:00am CDT

Morning Improv
It’s no secret. Writers, by nature, are… well… a bit more on the introspective side. Pitching your logline like a trained Shakespearean actor or approaching your screenwriting idol with the confidence of Kanye West during the Grammys® may feel a tad out of your comfort zone. Never fear – AFF is here! For the second year running, the Festival will be offering morning improv workshops during the Conference to help you warm up your inner Lone Star so you can ‘rise and shine’ throughout the day. Hopefully, you’ll be given the opportunity to say “yes, and” to new skills, friendships, and that screenplay deal. No experience necessary!

This workshop is presented by The New Movement.
