The Entertainment Industry: Writing and Producing Stories that Sell Print
Date: Wednesday, August 28 2013, 7:00 pm—9:00 pm
Location: Decatur
Event Type: Informational Programs
Age Group: Adult (18+)

After years of writing as a hobby, Kevin Lance Collins took a draft of his second screenplay, Talk Show, and used it to gain entrance into the Bill Cosby Screenwriting Fellowship Program. There he would complete his third feature, a thriller entitled Primitive. Even though features were his primary focus, in 2000, Kevin joined the production staff of the Showtime series, Soul Food. In series television he gained invaluable knowledge about the production process, from writing to post-production. In addition to writing for Soul Food, Kevin has also written for the popular television series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Kevin will discuss: how Hollywood works, the difference between film and television, how to write feature film vs. a one-hour television show, as well as discuss his experiences with writing novels and he will read from his current novel The Unveiling 1.0. Mr. Collins is currently a professor at two local art schools: The Savannah College of Art and Design (Atlanta) and The Creative Circus.
