Warner Bros. taps VPA alum for film directors workshop
Alexis Koryciski ’07 spent her first few years after college producing documentaries, and directed her own in 2011. Now she is one of five participants selected by Warner Bros. for its newly launched Emerging Film Directors Workshop. The program, which has been in the works for several years, is aimed at serving as a talent incubator designed to give access and voice to new and underrepresented talent via a seven-month fellowship with the opportunity to showcase their work.
Workshop participants have the option to develop their story idea and write it themselves or work with a screenwriter, which Korycinski is opting to do. The program will culminate with a film festival held at Warner Bros. this June, where Korycinski and the other the four filmmakers will premiere their films for exposure to agents, managers and industry professionals.
