Lipscomb University's George Shinn College of Entertainment & the Arts welcomes filmmaker, entrepreneur and screenwriter Seth Worley to campus on Tuesday, Oct. 21, for a special presentation on filmmaking at 10 a.m. in the Shamblin Theatre, which is located in Lipscomb’s Bennett Campus Center. 

During his presentation, Worley will cover an array of topics including shooting short videos, shoe stringing a shoot, special effects, screenwriting techniques and a few additional items that don’t involve alliteration. This event is open to the community, however, tickets are limited. The first 100 early bird tickets are free. Other tickets range from $5-10 each. Get yours today.

Worley is as an award-winning expert in short films, a commercial director for clients like J.J. Abrams, the creator of a new screenwriting tool called Storyclock, and a connoisseur of movie size explosions.

Steve Taylor, director of the school of theatre and cinematic arts at Lipscomb, says this is a once-and-a-lifetime opportunity for students to learn from a successful DIY filmmaker. 

“Seth Worley is a consummate DIY filmmaker: he writes, he shoots, he edits, he creates his own visual effects, and he’s able to teach all these skills in a way that’s fun and easy to understand,” said Taylor. “We are very fortunate to have him back at Lipscomb, and we invite Nasvhille's filmmaking community to join us for this special event."

Lipscomb University’s George Shinn College of Entertainment & the Arts is one of the fastest growing college in the university, with undergraduate degrees in animation, cinematic arts, fashion and design, contemporary and classical music, theater and dance, and visual arts.
