jamLABS: Feature Film Screenwriting w/ Rivers Cahee

May 11 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Rivers Cahee Headshot

Wednesday 5/11 6-9PM (Remote/Zoom)

We all possess a voice, unique to our lives as individuals. In my workshop, I will focus on helping our artists enhance their voices, while also applying structure into the stories they wish to tell. We will begin with screenwriting’s basic principles, from the premise, through the relationship between character and plot with a focus on writing for feature film format.  Prior to the course, I will read and present excerpts written by our participants for the group to workshop. In these sessions, our purpose will be to uplift and empower our peers with the tools and insight that will bring each of their stories to more solid ground. This is a safe space for artists as individuals, no matter the level they enter the workshop at. Our only intention is to become better story tellers in this course. This includes myself!

Rivers Cahee is a screenwriter and learning filmmaker from Lafayette, Louisiana. Introduced to these art forms during his time at Dartmouth College, he pivoted from the football program to pursue the arts. Upon his graduation, Rivers completed two short films and was also awarded the James Joseph Kaplan ‘Filmmaker of the Year’ award. He is now stationed in New York City, where he is beginning his career as a television writer for AMC studios. Most importantly, Rivers is an introverted extrovert whose biggest passion is the exploration of the human condition, through lived life.
