LEARN ABOUT SCOUT FILMMAKERS: Relaunch of Filmmaker Instagram Takeover Series 
We are thrilled to have Writer, Producer, and Actor from the United Kingdom, Emmeline Hartley, kick off this year's Filmmaker Instagram Takeover Series this Monday, April 1-6! No foolin'!

Emmeline's short, After Party, was nominated for Best Narrative Film in the 19 to 24 Year Old Category. A horror film with a twist ending, After Party was (obviously) a Scout Staff, Screening Committee, and Jury favorite!

Logline: Four girls wake up in a strange and terrifying room as all hell breaks loose. Will they escape or are they merely fulfilling their purpose?

Tune in on Monday to learn more about Emmeline, her film(s), technique, life in the UK... And, please follow, like, comment and share!
