Learn to develop stories for the screen

The National Screen Institute – Canada (NSI) and Telus Storyhive are bringing their latest training initiative to Vernon.

This free training workshop, From Concept to Camera: Developing Your Story for the Screen, takes place at the Vernon Public Art Gallery Sunday, April 2 from 1 to 6 p.m.

The workshop will address the development process from concept to camera. Training is delivered by NSI facilitators Robert Hardy, Mike Fly and Angela Heck. The workshop is open to the diverse community of producers and content creators in Vernon.

Emerging filmmakers and mid-career professionals are encouraged to attend this professional development opportunity to help develop their own projects and network with other filmmakers and content creators. Telus Storyhive facilitators will be on hand to share insights into funding opportunities available through the Storyhive platform.

Storyhive is a community-powered funding program for emerging content creators in B.C. and Alberta. Local creators apply for production grants to produce short-form videos with funding and distribution from Telus. Grant recipients are chosen through a competitive process that combines demonstrated community support, voting, and a jury of industry experts and Telus team members.

The NSI is renowned for having given many emerging filmmakers, TV writers and producers their first breaks, and provides training and production support through various courses as well as offering exposure through the NSI Online Short Film Festival.

The Vernon workshop is free of charge but registration is required. To register, visit Eventbrite or email your name and contact information to by March 27.
