A Spirit of Independence with Jake Mahaffy


For our May Writer’s Room we are joined by innovative US filmmaker Jake Mahaffy, whose shorts and microbudget features have screened in A-list festivals all over the world.

His project War, which he wrote, directed and produced, screened at Sundance in 2004, and earned him a spot in Filmmaker Magazine’s 2005 ‘25 New Faces of Independent Film‘. He went on to make micro-budget feature Wellness, which won the Grand Jury Prize at SXSW in 2008. His work has been called a “a textbook case of how a solid script and great performances can transcend the lowest of budgets.” (Variety 2008)

Join chair Cushla Dillon and Mahaffy as they delve into writing for performance on a non-existent budget, the relationship of the screenplay to directing, and break down the simplest elements of cinematic narrative.
