How many times have you been to the movies and thought, "I could do that"? Have you ever thought, "I have a movie in me I want to see on the big screen"? Well, this participatory Kelly Writers House workshop will help launch you into the movies. Or at least learning about them. We will deal with how you come to grips with developing a screen story, structuring it, writing it, and hopefully selling it.

Andy Wolk’s writing/directing career began with the much-lauded HBO movie Criminal Justice starring Forest Whitaker that made Time Magazine’s “Ten Best” List. Mr. Wolk has been nominated 3 times for the Writers Guild Award and won it once for Natica Jackson starring Michelle Pfeiffer. He has been nominated for the Director's Guild Award several times and has directed numerous episodes of shows such as The Sopranos, Damages,NYPD Blue, Criminal Minds, Without A Trace and The Practice. He has been writer and director on many legal-themed movies including Deliberate Intent, the critically praised 1st movie ever for FX starring Timothy Hutton and (with his brother Peter, also a Penn grad) the acclaimed Fighting The Odds for Lifetime, The Defenders: Payback, Choice of Evils and Taking The First for Showtime. Mr. Wolk’s other writing credits include HBO’s Emmy-winning From The Earth to The Moon and the award-winning Tales from The Crypt starring Demi Moore. He has written features for Miramax, Paramount,Tri-Star, UA, MGM, Warner Brothers, Columbia Pictures, and AVCO Embassy plus pilots for Fox, ABC, and Showtime.
