    The art of physical production is a talent learned over many decades of experience. But how do you get experience without having any previous experience? How do you shoot a series idea on little to no budget? And how do you transition from indie to network, if the opportunity arises?

    As harrowing as it is exhilarating, the journey of writing a script is not for the faint of heart. While sometimes perceived to be a solitary task, we instead believe that putting your story to ink is best achieved through the guidance of a skilled mentor and a workshop of peers.
