In this workshop participants will learn and improve on proper formatting, story structure, and writing skills. Sign up for screenwriters workshops.

Postproduction is the final piece when putting together a film. Participants will have access to Adobe Creative Suite programs and receive coaching to learn basic to advanced level of editing in Premier Pro, After Effects, and Audition. Sign up for postproduction workshop announcements!

Our directors will oversee the filmmakers group. However, they will need to be put through an interview process and vetted by our JUMP Team. The directors will also be in another position besides director on another team.
Directors will not be able to direct their own script. We will also have openings for assistant directors who will “apprentice” under the directors to teach them about directing skills.
