Hello all! Meet me: Christina Burlison. I’m a screenwriter, a graduate from UT Austin’s Graduate Screenwriting program and I’m currently interning with the Austin Film Festival, which I love, by the way.
This year, my feature YEAR OF THE COCK a romantic comedy about a heartbroken lesbian who wants to know what’s so special about the opposite sex, made it to the second round in comedy. My pilot DREAM SCREEN, a police procedural about a man who dreams of murder 48 hours before it occurs made it to the Second Round also.
If I weren’t a Second Rounder, and didn’t have the opportunity to attend all the Second Rounder panels, my schedule would include:
A Conversation with Alec Berg
Roundtable: The Creative Side
Roundtable: The Business Side
Raising Stakes, Reversals, and Payoffs: A Conversation with Shane Black
A Shot of Inspiration
Script-to-Screen: FIGHT CLUB with Jim Uhls
In the TV Writers’ Room
A Conversation with 2011 Distinguished Screenwriter Awardee Caroline Thompson
The Art of Storytelling with the 2011 Awardees
The films I am most excited to attend include: BUTTER, THE DESCENDENTS, DESPICABLE DICK AND RIGHTEOUS RICHARD, EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, JEFF WHO LIVES AT HOME, THE RUM DIARY, and Kyle Killen’s Pilot “Awake.”
What are you going to attend?
