Klecksography Filmmaker Open Call 2020
Rorschach will employ five filmmakers to work on Klecksography 2020 from July 31 through August 9, 2020. Klecksography is a week long project during which we create, stage and perform six new short plays and 5 short films. One of the goals of this project is to connect actors, directors, filmmakers & playwrights with artists and producers they may not yet know and there will be opportunities to be seen and network with other theatre companies besides Rorschach Theatre. (Already signed up are Arena Stage, Mosaic Theatre, Imagination Stage, 1st Stage, and Adventure Theatre with more to come.) All filmmakers in Klecksography will be compensated with a $100 honorarium. Filmmakers will cast, script and direct their own projects. Rorschach can recommend collaborating artists by request. Read more at https://rorschachtheatre.com/open-call-2020/.

What is your artistic vision?
[100-200 words] Please be as specific as possible. We want to know what makes your outlook on the world different from your peers. What sets you apart and how does it influence your work.
