ConVal students get a taste of Hollywood
The students are getting a taste of Hollywood in the class that is teaching them to master the craft of writing for film.
"We always wanted to have an educational outreach program," Wiederspahn said. "By the end of (the class), they are going to have a short script."
"The course is basically teaching them how to write. Everything from A to Z," Wiederspahn he said.
"This could totally open a ton of doors if we take it seriously," Zoe Smith, 14, said. "I immediately jumped on this opportunity. I really hope I can get as far as I can with this."
Junior Liam Healey, 16, says he hasn't done a lot of writing outside of school. He was encouraged by a friend to join the class and was soon enthralled with the power of story-telling.
Wiederspahn met with the students one-on-one Thursday to discuss the outline of their scripts. During the 18-week course, he plans to walk them through the outline and first and final drafts of their scripts.
