The first Script to Screen event in City College

Students, professors and aspiring writers gathered in the Saville Theatre for City College’s very first event geared at those aspiring to get into the film industry.

Script to Screen: The San Diego Indie Scene was held on April 27.

Attendees to the free event were able to learn about several things including writing screen and directing a screenplay.

Guest speakers also discussed the casting and production process.

Attendees were also able to watch a teaser for “El Camino Real.” Directed by David McClendon, the film discusses the life of an undocumented immigrant from Mexico and parts of the film were shot around the City College campus.

The guest speakers who attended the Script to Screen event included some of City’s own faculty including Russell Redmond, David McClendon, Kathy MuCurdy, John Rosenberg, Cy Kuckenbaker and many others.

Professor Redmond, who also served as the event’s coordinator, expressed the importance of having a good script.

“Without a script, it is like without a plan,” said Redmond.

Redmond also explained the importance for students and writers to learn from these workshops and try to network with attendees.

Many people showed up to the event which happened early on a Saturday morning and expressed that they were impressed by many of the speakers.

Professors enjoyed the outcome, they felt confident about having another event some time next year.

“This is our first Script to Screen here in City College, but this won’t be our last,” Redmond. He added that, “I am sure next time we have another Script to Screen it will be held in the grand opening of the new RTVC building.”
