Every year, a select number of screenwriters are invited to participate in Film Independent’s Screenwriting Lab, a four-week program that helps writers take their current scripts to the next level in a nurturing and challenging creative environment.
This year, SFTV alum Tom Huang (MFA – ’02) has been one of seven fellows selected into the Screenwriting Lab. He has also been awarded the LMU SFTV Screenwriting Fellowship, a $10,000 grant that will allow him to develop his script, Dealing with Dad. According to a press release sent out by Film Independent, “Dealing with Dad” follows the story of a slightly dysfunctional family dealing with the clinical depression of their Dad… whom everybody happens to hate.”
