UCLA Story Break Live

Feedback form is now closed.
Panelists from the Festival will break a feature story in front of an audience. They won't know the story idea beforehand. It will be a high pressure (but fun) situation in which the writers must have the entire story ready to pitch to the studio by the panel's end. One random Second Rounder in attendance will be chosen to participate. Come have a drink on us and watch the creativity unfold.

This panel is presented by UCLA Professional Programs.

Must have an AFF Producers or Conference Badge to attend.
