The July meeting had 67 attendees
The Central Illinois Film Commission (ClFC) will hold a screenwriting class at it’s monthly meeting Thursday July 25th in the Highland Room of the Hilton Hotel at 7pm. The guest lecturer will be Cheryl Croasun,daughter of Springfield residents Chuck and Joyce Ludwig. Cheryl and her husband run the largest online screenwriting education program in the world. They host a website called ScreenwriterU.com. At these classes you can learn to write and produce movies and reality shows and then successfully market them to agents, managers, and producers. Their advance classes go on a tour where they meet producers and actors
How did they get into this when Cheryl and her husband were living in Austin Texas where he was a corporate business and leadership trainer? One day he said, “I’d like to make a movie.” The next thing you know they’ve shot a feature movie in 6 months. First feature length film and it was picked up by Miramax. However, the screenplay wasn’t very good. So her husband started thinking. I want to know more. He thinks “I write training models as a living. Why can’t I develop a model for writing a screenplay? ” So he starts interviewing 500 producers and agents and the next thing you know a 6 month long screenwriting class which focuses on how to make a movie and sell it to Hollywood is developed. They now have the most successful online screenwriting education company in the world.
Their idea is that you don’t have to choose between art and talent you just have to follow the rules of marketing and you and your product will be successful. Their graduates have a high success rate.
Our next meeting is being held on June 20, 2013 at 7:00pm.We have many different things going on right now.
