Every Autumn my college puts out a call for new course ideas for the arts department, with the intent that these course will be taught the following September if there’s enough interest by students. I tossed my hat in the ring this time, and the results were just released!
I’m the new course designer (and presumed teacher) of Scriptwriting for Mixed Media (working title) at Fanshawe College in Fall 2012.
It’s going to be interesting, but I’m really looking forward to it. Thanks to my time spent doing Audio Drama I’ve gotten to think a lot about scriptwriting over the past five years, and I look forward to sharing some of my thoughts and ideas with students next September. The fun part is that I’m not going to just do audio and video scripts, but Comic Book scripts as well. (Hence the “mixed media” portion of the title.)
All I can say is- Celtx is going to be a godsend! (Like it wasn’t already! Thanks Jack!)
SIGH! And a theme template for WordPress has crashed the KFAT site, dashboard and all! Thank god for backups, but it will be down for a while.
Some of you might be wondering why there’s a sudden flurry of activity here on my blog after being semi-dormant for so many months. Well, the truth is that I’ve always been doing this much posting, but it’s all been on Twitter and Facebook. (As my Twitter Feed digests on here show.) I just decided to start putting everything on my Blog and then letting feeds repeat it on FB and Twitter instead of posting to those services. I also got a nifty Firefox App called Shareaholic which lets me post pages and interesting things to WordPress with almost no copy-pasting or effort.
I think with the arrival of Google+ it also became a little much to post to 3 services for social networking purposes. I hope I can import this blog feed into G+ shortly as well!
I’m in the process of updating the KFAT websites and the Robynpaterson.com ones as well. I’ve switched to the Twenty-Eleven theme to simplify KFAT’s homepage and to upgrade the RP.com page. The RP.com page still looks a bit plain, though.
