VIDA Filmworx is proud to announce the kick-off to our "Haciendo Peliculas/Making Movies" Film Workshop Series.  Our Screenwriting Workshop taught by Sam Zalutsky will be the first step in the series which is additionally composed of the Actors/Directors Lab, the Pre-Production Workshop and the Production Workshop.  Whether you have an idea already fleshed out or are wondering where to get started, our Screenwriting Workshop will help you craft your thoughts into a finished piece.  From there, up to two screenplays (depending on length) will be selected for further development through the workshop series.

Workshop Instructor Sam Zalutsky is currently a screenwriting professor at Spalding University's MFA in writing, where he works with screenwriters and playwrights. He has taught filmmaking at Tec de Monterrey, Mexico's largest private university, in Queretaro. He has also taught screenwriting at the Makor/Steinhardt Center of the 92nd Street Y and screenwriting and directing at the New York Film Academy. He is also a former script reader and evaluator for Miramax films.


His feature screenplay, 'Mama's Boy,' a thriller, is currently in development with an independent producer. It was a finalist for the Sundance Screenwriters Lab and the Richard Vague Award (NYU). His compelling and moving short films have screened at film festivals around the world and all have received distribution on television and/or in shorts compilations.  His newest short, 'SuperStore,' stars Clea Lewis (ABC's 'Ellen,' ) and airs this summer on WNET's Reel New York showcase of independent film. His MFA thesis film, 'Stefan's Silver Bell,' was nominated for NYU Tisch School of the Arts' highest filmmaking award, the Wasserman, and won awards for acting (2), cinematography, and producing.  It aired in 2004 on WNET's Reel New York. 'Smear,' his first short, aired on the Independent Film Channel for three years and is currently distributed on the compilation 'Boys Briefs.'.
