|Call for Screenplays from Le Moyne Students|
All currently enrolled Le Moyne students are invited to submit original screenplays for consideration in the second "Le Moyne Makes Movies" project. (The first project resulted in the 35-minute film "Business Affairs", which was written by, acted in, and produced completely by Le Moyne students.) Screenplays must be submitted by Dec. 1, 2015. A website for electronic submissions is being constructed and will be announced as soon as it is complete. Acceptable scripts may fit any of the following categories: · An original screenplay. · A screenplay adaptation from a work of literature in another medium (e.g., book) that is also in the public domain. · An original stage play (or an adaptation of a play in the public domain) accompanied by a visual treatment. The winning script will be no longer than 30 pages, in standard screenplay format. Once a script is chosen, all Le Moyne students will be invited to participate in the film’s production. Information about those opportunities will be distributed later this semester. For more information, please contact Prof. Pat Lawler (firstname.lastname@example.org), Prof. Bryan Cole (email@example.com), or Prof. Dan Roche (firstname.lastname@example.org.).
