We are now accepting applications for the spring 2019 Marion Knott Distinguished Artist Scholar Program. This semester our talented Distinguished Artist is Castle Rock Entertainment Co-Founder and producer Martin Shafer (Music and Lyrics, Beowulf, Flipped, Before Midnight).

If selected to participate as a Marian Knott Scholar, you will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with Mr. Shafer. Scholars should have a work in progress, either a screenplay, a concept in development, or footage suitable for an episodic form to work on during the semester. Scholars will meet individually with Mr. Shafer for an hour every other Tuesday (between 2 and 7 p.m.). Scholars are also required to enroll in FTV 310/510 (Tuesday, 7 -10 p.m.) with Professor Alex Rose (you do not have to be enrolled in this course to apply. However, if you are selected, you will have to enroll). There will be a required lunch with Mr. Shafer and all of the Scholars at the end of the semester.

Complete the online application form by 11:59 p.m. (PST) on Friday, January 25, 2019.

Selected scholars will be notified by Wednesday, January 30, 2019.
