SCRIPT TO SCREEN TEAM
SAG-AFTRA members have created the Script to Screen Team to support the creative film throughout south Texas. Each month, SAG-AFTRA members read a professional film script before a live audience to industry pros, performers and potential investors. This one-time read connects the performers with other members of the film community and helps the screenwriters hone their material. Script to Screen reads now happen in both Houston and Austin. To find out the location of the next read, or to become a part of the team, contact Trish Avery at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (214) 363-8300.

Michael Chekhov (1891-1955) was an Oscar nominee whose students included Marilyn Monroe, Clint Eastwood, Yul Brynner, Jack Nicholson, Ingrid Bergman, Elizabeth Taylor, James Dean, Beatrice Straight and many others, most of whom kept their work with him private. His work was so far ahead of its time that it is only today becoming popular with the general public. Lisa Dalton is a world master, documentarian of this technique and used it for a very successful stunt and acting career spanning forty years.
