Screen-writing class offered
Filmmaker, director and Marlboro College professor Jay Craven will conduct a screenwriting workshop for teens on Friday, Aug. 24, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Jamestown library.
Craven, the artistic director of Kingdom County Productions, has made award-winning feature films, including "Disappearances," "Where the Rivers Flow North," with Rip Torn, Tantoo Cardinal, and Michael J. Fox; "A Stranger in the Kingdom," with David Lansbury, Ernie Hudson, and Martin Sheen and "The Year that Trembled," with Marin Hinkle, Jonathan Brandis, Fred Willard, Martin Mull and Henry Gibson.
Craven also directs KCP's Fledgling Films Program for teen filmmakers, and is the recipient of awards including The Producers Guild of America's 1995 NOVA Award for Most Promising New Producer of the Year. He most recently completed production on a Vermont PBS series Windy Acres, and just finished the KCP production of Disappearances, starring Kris Kristofferson.
This free program is funded by the Friends of Jamestown Philomenian Library. Visit the library at 26 North Main Rd. or call 423-7280 to register after Aug. 13.
