Writer / Janet C. Striebel
The WriteStuff Writers will host its 2015 “Across the Arts” Conference with a spectacular all-inclusive program featuring New York Times bestselling authors, filmmakers, talent agents, representatives from Indiana Film Festivals, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the IMAX Theater and the Cincinnati Film Festival; artists, musicians, book editors and more.
This second annual “Across the Arts” sensation will be held on Saturday, October 3 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at the “Venue Theatre” within the Fishers Crosspoint Community Church located off Olio Road.
You can expect plenty of free parking, a top-notch theatre with state-of-the-art facilities, exceptional entertainment, a sampling of creative and literary expertise at your command, and of course unlimited complimentary coffee.
“We’re excited about how this program will connect with the citizens in our community who are hungry for more arts,” says Andy Murphy, author, Founder of WriteStuff Writers Conferences and Workshops and co-partner and founder of Ever Film Productions, LLC. “It’s interesting to learn how all these successful guests have excelled in their careers as they share their life stories with us.”
Murphy invites members of book clubs to join in on this exceptional day.
“It’s a perfect opportunity to meet authors and filmmakers, and it inspires us to add their works to our list of books to read upon hearing about their personal lives,” says Murphy who happens to be the mother to Ryan Murphy, famous writer, producer and co-creator of “Nip/Tuck,” “Glee,” “American Horror Story” and soon-to-come “Scream Queens.”
You won’t want to miss a special interview session with Angelo Pizzo, writer, director and filmmaker conducted by fellow Indiana filmmaker, Dan Hall (Vizmo Films). Angelo will share clips from his soon-to-be-released November 13 film, “My All American,” based on a true story.
“This is just a sampling of the talent at this upcoming conference,” says Amy Pauszek, producer, event coordinator and marketing director of WriteStuff Writers Conferences and Workshops and co-partner of Ever Film Productions, LLC. “We are very proud to have so many talented professionals who are donating their time to give back to the community.”
Brought back by popular demand will be the audience game show, “Wait! Wait! Do Tell Me” with game show host Tom Britt, founder of TownePost Network (a sponsor of this event).
“We have many wonderful gifts that have been donated by corporate companies as celebrities compete to win prizes for our ticket holders,” says Pauszek.
The Master of Ceremonies will be Michael Lawson, grandson of the late Mac and Arline Reynolds, founders of Reynolds Farm Equipment Inc.
“Just about everyone living in Fishers has driven through the Reynolds holiday light display at one time. This festive light display off 37 and 126th now exceeds over one million lights,” says Murphy.
“The Reynolds family has a huge love for arts and community. They always step up to the plate so generously with their time and support for so many wonderful causes.”
Incidentally, Murphy and her business partner, Pauszek, with Ever Film Productions, LLC (everfilmproductions.com) are working on a documentary about Arline Reynolds, “On a Starry Night,” paying tribute to the woman who started the idea of illuminating the Holiday spirit back in the 1950s.
Also, they are producing another documentary about the sisters of St. Francis called, “A Sign of the Cross.”
“Our mission is to find women and focus on their untold accomplishments and real life stories that might otherwise disappear from the fabric of our lives,” says Pauszek.
Both Murphy and Pauszek will serve as moderators for “Across the Arts” conference in addition to host, CBS4-TV news anchor and Emmy winner Debbie Knox who will conduct one-on-one interviews in the Writer’s Studio and lead panels with selected guests of the arts.
Also Kelly Vaughn, well-known radio and TV personality, with her weekly show “Inside Indy” on WHMB-TV channel 40 will serve as a moderator.
A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to Crosspoint Church to fund holiday food and care baskets for the needy.
