Once a year 25 writers are invited to Idyllwild, CA, to immerse in an intensive 4-day workshop with movie producers, working writers & agents. It's a fantastic opportunity for an up and coming writer to sharpen their current projects, network with industry insiders and potentially forge lasting, working relationships with mentors.

I'm full of ideas & primed to impress with my writing skills, but those of you who know me undestand that my bank account is empty and quite depressing. Countless time, money, energy, the core of who I am, goes into my (now 15 year) journey to carve out a career making movies. I've had a lot of help & support through the years and now I ask for a little more to capitalize on this exciting opportunity.
I was skeptical about the price tag, but spoke at length with a fellow screenwriter who attended recently and she assured me that CineStory is bonafide & more than worth the cost.
What am I doing with your money? $1575 covers tuition for the workshop meetings, events, food, beverages. The rest will go to airfare and lodging.
What do YOU get for your donation? On top of my eternal gratitude & promise to work my ass off, I will provide a (PDF) copy of one of my scripts that will be workshopped while in Idyllwild. The choice is yours!
I have until August 16th to send tuition payment & secure my spot. The 2014 CineStory Foundation convenes on September 26th.
Thanks so much for reading this message. And special thanks to Neal Young for suggesting I get off my butt and get to fundraising!
EDIT: bumped up the goal amount just enough to cover the cut this site & WePay takes, didn't realize the % was so high.
