Storytelling Workshops Series:

Join Lego Group's own Sr. Art Director Morten Bonde, who has been writing and directing for over 20 years, and documentary filmmaker and journalist, blindDANCE CoFounder Ben Fox (both legally blind) as they interview the entertainment industry's top directors, scriptwriters and producers, who will breakdown their tips for success for our community. 

 

The purpose of the monthly blindDANCE Storytelling Workshop Series is to:

1. Provide a gathering place for our growing group of filmmakers who are blind, and our supporters

2. To connect this community of creative talent while supporting/cheering for one another regularly, meeting at scheduled times. 

 

The monthly workshop is a place for blindDANCE Film Festival organizers to present updates and live announcements to our filmmaking community.

 

Also filmmakers who are sighted are excited to join the workshop series as guests to lend their expertise, this creates a bridge and avenue for our filmmakers to engage the mainstream entertainment industry.
