Deadlines Approach for Next UPSTART Workshop

By January 23, 2018Uncategorized

Auditions for new UPSTART members will be held on February 5, while the deadline for returning members to apply is February 2.

UPSTART is a workshop that has something for everyone. Over an eight week period, participants come together every Monday night to film scenes and watch their work. Participation is open to any Alberta based writers, actors, and directors who have some basic experience in their field. Don’t let your skills get rusty waiting for the phone to ring! Get involved with UPSTART and give your talent the regular workout you deserve.

Actors – experience working with different Directors and keep your talents fresh by working on new scenes each week. Directors – experiment while gaining experience working with talented actors. Writers – there’s no cost to submit a script! If it’s appropriate for UPSTART, our participants will shoot the scene while you watch your script come to life!
