Script Writing Workshop with Freida Lee Mock
“Nothing Stops A Bullet Like A Job”
It is with a short, remarkable quote that we begin our journey to an inspiring movie called G – Dog, a film by Academy Award Winner Freida Lee Mock.
On 5th February 2014, SSR Jakarta was delighted to welcome Freida during her visit to Indonesia.
Freida Lee Mock is an Academy Award and Emmy Award winning filmmaker, director, writer and producer of feature length and short form theatrical documentary films. These include the Oscar winner Maya Lin: A Strong Vision, a feature film about the designer of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.
During her tour in Indonesia with The American Film Showcase, Freida shared her personal and professional thoughts, expertise, and ideas with SSR students through a scriptwriting workshop. The goal of this workshop was for Freida to share her knowledge to encourage the students in their script writing skill.
Script writing is the art of planning and pouring all the ideas and thoughts to words, the craft of writing which is the root of a movie. During the workshop, Freida asked the students about the short film they are currently working on.
At the end of the workshop, there was a meet and greet interview session between Freida Mock and SSR Jakarta staff and students.
It was a real pleasure and honor to welcome such a talented guest to SSR, and we would like to pay special thanks to the US Embassy staff and Freida Lee Mock for giving us the special workshop and spending some time with our students.
