Writer’s Workshop

On March 15, 2012, we held the Skins Writers Workshop in collaboration with FOX AUDIENCE STRATEGY, the American Indian Writers Committee at the Writers Guild of America, West, and FINAL DRAFT. We had great speakers and guests from several studios, networks and talent agencies.

The workshop featured the SKINS PITCH PIT. The SKINS PITCH PIT is a speed pitching session for the participating writers of the workshop. It allowed the participants to pitch their projects to several network development executives, managers, and creative consultants. It was a great success thanks to our network participants from FOX, CBS, NBC, USA, SYFY, Universal Cable Television, Artists International and Carole Kirschner. Our writers benefited from the information, advice, and overall experience.

On March 27th, 2013, we organized a luncheon with UNIVERSAL FEATURES. Native American writers met with Vice President of Production, Kristen Lowe, to discuss writing, pitching and producing for feature films. This endeavor expanded the participants’ writing possibilities and offered additional vocational options to explore.

On June 6th, 2013 the LA SKINS FEST held the 2nd Skins Writers Workshop. The workshop included a variety of speakers that explained the entertainment industry from an inside perspective. Bradley Stuart Glenn, from Kaplan Stahler Agency, discussed the process of locating and signing with a talent agent. Tiffany Smith-Anao’I and Jeanne Mau, from CBS Diversity, discussed their many writing initiatives. Donna Michelle Anderson, an executive from BET, broke down script structure and the process of writing for the industry.

On November 12th, 2013, we organized our second pitch pit featuring executives from HUB Network, NBC, Universal, ABC/DISNEY, BET, and FOX as part of the 7th Annual LA SKINS FEST. We are coordinating the 2014 workshop Tuesday November 11th. Please email contact@laskinsfest.com for details.
