Raindance's practical filmmaking and writing workshops break the daunting cinema-creation process into digestible lectures, as industry professionals lead talks to elevate the aptitude of independent filmmakers and artists. During Raindance founder Elliot Grove's introductory film school, the prolific producer delves into the essentials of screenplay writing, production, directing, and distribution options. Various lectures and a supportive handbook allow students to glean the knowledge needed to convert the fancy-dancing and slow-punching scenes of youthful cinemaginations into a script filled with plausible characters and plot holes arranged into a looping tunnel that critics will never escape. The action-packed day concludes with a networking session at a local bar, where participants can trade business cards to further their cinematic pursuits.
