Learn everything you need to know from screenwriting, shooting, scheduling, marketing, sound, directing, festivals. The class will be broken into small filmmaking teams. Each team will produce a short film using digital video technology. The course will feature guest speakers from the Austin Film Community on cameras, lighting and other elements of filmmaking.

"I walked into Kat's 'Script to Screen' class with a story idea, knowing I wanted to make a short film, but not knowing how to get it off the ground. I walked out of Kat's class with a finished short film that I'm now submitting to film festivals and with my next project in the planning stages. Best money I ever spent!

"Kat's passion to share her skill and insight as a filmmaker is obvious from Day One. And as advertised, she was able to provide a gentle, supportive hand on the voyage from Script to Screen. She took this bohemian hodge-podge of different age groups and backgrounds and turned them all into filmmakers (poof!). I left the class with a lot of new info and a completed film, which I expected. But I also got something I did not anticipate going in, perhaps even more rewarding and valuable: new allies and mentors and collaborators to take forward onto the next project."
