Saturday – November 10, 2012
The Greater Cleveland Film Commission is proud to host multiple Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning Writer-Producer Erik Bork, who will talk about his work as a screenwriter in the film and television industry in Los Angeles — which he’s been doing professionally for the last fifteen years.
Best known for the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers and From the Earth to the Moon, Erik grew up in Ohio, and graduated from the film program at Wright State University in Dayton before moving to the west coast. He eventually broke into the business with the help of Tom Hanks – who he worked for originally as an office assistant.
Come join us from 9-3pm at the Unified Technologies Center on Tri-C’s metro campus (Room 229) to hear about Erik’s experiences dealing with agents and producers, pitching ideas, working on television writing staffs, and writing original screenplays and pilots for the major studios – all while trying to figure out “what makes a great story?” He will show clips from his work, answer questions, and provide insider knowledge about what the entertainment industry is looking for, how it works, and the best practices for aspiring writers and filmmakers.
When he’s not developing and writing his own projects, Erik teaches screenwriting for National University’s online MFA in Professional Screenwriting program, blogs about writing, and offers one-one-one coaching and consulting to writers through his website at www.flyingwrestler.com (for which attendees will be offered a discount).
