How I Write (HIW) is a Sweetland Center for Writing speaker series where writers of all kinds discuss their writing processes. This month we present Slapping and Serving Your Audience: Conjuring an Effective Pop Narrative. Independent filmmaker Sharad Patel will screen his film Christian Roane, a supernatural thriller/mystery set on a college campus, followed by a brief talk and q&a session.
Sharad is a true independent filmmaker who often serves as writer, director, cinematographer, editor, motion graphics artist, composer, and sound editor on his work that crosses documentary, animation, narrative, and experimental genres. He recently served as the 2012 Chelsea Artist in Residence at the Chelsea Center for the Arts and currently works as a freelance producer based in Ann Arbor.
