October Meeting - tomorrow! 6th October 2013, 2pm, Derby Museum

After a fantastic and inspirational workshop from Risaria Langley in September, we're gathering to talk story outlines this month, with our 150-word pitches at the ready!  We're looking to develop, write and critique these ideas into a clutch of fantastic short film scripts over the course of this year, ready to transform them into short films in 2014 - watch this space! If you're interested in joining us at the meeting, or at future meetings, get in touch through the email  -we'd love to see you!
