FHS Students attended a Screenwriting program
Eight FHS students, Jamie Mercado, Erin Neuhengen, Taylor St. Onge, Joe Stefanczyk, Katie Theel, Evan Watters, Elizabeth Zingsheim, and Brandon Klein, were chosen to participate in the first workshop of the Milwaukee Film Collaborative Cinema Screenwriting program. There were over 300 submissions by high school students in the Milwaukee area. The 50 students were chosen to participate in an all day work shop on Saturday, January 26th at the UW-Milwaukee Film School. They learned how to write a short screenplay and met with professional mentors for advice. The students turned in a short screenplay and met with mentors again for revisions. The final screenplay will be chosen, produced in the summer and submitted to film festivals around the country. Outstanding work!
