An inside perspective on turning your story into a television series or major motion picture, presented by Casey Sherman, New York Times bestselling author and founder, Whydah Productions.

Cape Cod native Casey Sherman is the acclaimed author of The Finest Hours, which was turned into a major motion picture by Disney, and Boston Strong, which inspired the film Patriots Day.

Over the weekend symposium participants will learn the following:

Writing a script? Sherman will show you how to build characters, structure your plot, and pay off with the story.

Selling the story? Sherman will teach you the art of the pitch and how to own the room.

Why not you? Sherman will share the inspirational story about his hard fought journey from Cape Cod to Hollywood.

Participants will be offered an opportunity to pitch their stories and receive feedback.
