A brand-new script reading series — Black Shirt Reads — is debuting in Santa Fe next week (more details to come), and as part of that, I’ll be guesting on KSFR-FM‘s weekly Cinema Scope this Friday night (October 17), 6:30pm, at 101.1 on the old radio dial. (If you’re out of the broadcast area, or have decided radios are a relic of the 20th century, you can also stream the broadcast live, of course.)
Black Shirt Reads is the brainchild of co-principals Kathleen Dexter and Joanna Smith-Thole, who have both studied with local screenwriter Kirk Ellis and placed well in screenwriting competitions. With the demise of the long-running Screenwriting Conference at Santa Fe (where both Kirk and I served as faculty for a number of years), they’ve developed a quarterly event to produce and deliver table readings with some of the best actors in town .
They’ve asked me to offer professional commentary and facilitate some discussion at the conclusion of the table reading, which is happening Monday night, October 20, 6pm, at George R.R. Martin‘s Jean Cocteau Cinema. (Tickets are a mere five bucks — and you get access to some of the best movie popcorn in town.)
Much more information on Cinema Scope this Friday night; tune in if you can — and I’ll provide further details here over the weekend . . .
