Alexis's Story

My passion is making stories.

I discovered this passion through drawing. At school, I would always make time to draw during classes, during lunch, and after I finished my homework. At this time I wanted my drawings to have a purpose; to come to life. The more I became interested in screenwriting, the more I would write down stories, which gave me the full extent of my imagination.

US Performing Arts: Screenwriting would help me explore my passion for screenwriting because I feel that this program would help my better understanding in the screenwriting field. I feel that I could learn from others in the program, not just teachers and professionals, but even other students around my age and see how unique and amazing everyone's story is.

A Note from Mr. Weintraub, Alexis's Mentor

"Alexis is a great candidate for the Screenwriting program at Stanford because he is highly motivated to learn more about this artistic medium and give voice to the stories in his head. Specifically, Alexis is hoping to write a screenplay about a dystopian world that looks like the 1960's (he likes the curves and lines of the buildings and objects from this era) but is really a post-apocalyptic time period. His story will focus on the persistence of love in a time of war. Attending this workshop will help Alexis bring this story to life - at least as a screenplay."
