Filmmaker Angelique Little will present a workshop on Scene Writing at the March meeting of Willamette Writers Coast Chapter. The event takes place from 7:00 to 8:30 pm on Tuesday, March 19th in the Newport Public Library’s McEntee meeting room at 35 NW Nye Street in Newport. The event is free and open to the public.
Beginning her career as an actress, Angelique Little appeared on Unsolved Mysteries, Days of Our Lives, Six Feet Under, The O.C. and as a woman with Alopecia in the short film Hairless before directing her first short film. The Smartest Person Who Ever Lived was “Pick of Fest” at Palm Springs Intl. Festival of Shorts and aired on KTEH as part of the showcase of films at Cinequest. She studied screenwriting at UCLA and has coached playwrights, novelists and screenwriters to strengthen the emotional core of their stories.
Angelique is currently developing a web series about a teenage girl’s search for love while mourning her mother’s death. Angelique is looking forward to writing dynamic scenes across genres with the Willamette Writers. Attendees may bring a scene from their writing that they want to strengthen, or an emotional beat that they want to convert into a scene.
