Southern Screen is offering a free masterclass workshop series in celebration of their 10th anniversary.

The Lafayette-based non-profit organization says it has partnered with Louisiana Entertainment to present Southern Screen Sessions, a live five-part masterclass workshop series available to the public online for free.

Southern Screen says the series is designed to inform and engage both creative professionals and anyone interested in learning more about the art of storytelling through film, music and more.

Southern Screen Sessions are scheduled to begin in June and will run throughout the summer.

Masterclass workshop presenters include a prestigious lineup of entertainment professionals from around the United States.

Southern Screen Sessions include:

June 9th: "Breaking into the Business" with Alison Becker, actress (Parks and Recreation)

June 23rd: "Experimenting with Recording at Home" with Chad Viator, record producer (Still Sound Studio)

July 7th: "Finding Your Voice as a Cinematographer" with Natalie Kingston, DP (Lost Bayou)

July 21st: "The Nature of Documentary Producing" with Darcy Mckinnon, film producer (Maquilapolis)

“With the number of canceled or postponed productions, events and live shows, we understand how much this pandemic has affected the entertainment industry. With this series, our intention is to give back while also continuing our mission of providing a platform for storytellers to sharpen their skills,” says Julie Bordelon, founder/executive director of Southern Screen.

Adults and children 15 and over are welcome to participate in Southern Screen Sessions though the number of spots available is limited and advance registration is required. For more details and information on how to register visit: []
