Austin Film Festival

Hey Everyone,

I just started an internship position at Austin FIlm Festival… I’m sorry I haven’t been posting much lately, but I know from here on out I will be keeping everyone posted on local Austin Film Festival events and add some more entertainment news here and there…

This Weekend:

AFF Presents: “Write What You Know, Then Make the Rest Up,” Conversations in Film with Screenwriter Anne Rapp


WHEN: Sunday, August 24 |  Discussion, 3PM | Movie screening, 5PM


WHERE: Renaissance Hotel 9721 Arboretum Blvd, Austin, TX 78759; Alamo Lake Creek (13729 Research Blvd) screening of “Cookies Fortune”


COST: $12/AFF Members, $17/General Public |


INFO: – 512.478.4795

Join Rapp for an intimate conversation about the art of screenwriting and how to utilize memory as a writing tool. As Anne explains, “I draw stories from observing the world and people around me–using both current observations and memories from childhood and the past–and attempt to find a balance between real life experiences and my imagination to create movies that are very human and honest.” Immediately following the seminar, we’ll move to the Alamo Drafthouse Lake Creek where Anne will host a Cookie’s Fortune screening complete with a special Southern menu! Conversations in Film is sponsored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science®

About torreyb

Torrey Burchak: I have a passion for education and am constantly searching for ways to expand my skills. My recent interests have led me to the wonderful realm of psychology, which I am planning to take this interest one step further by heading back to school, yet again. UT Undergrad Graduation 2008 Professional Background: My references from studies at U.T. along with strong working relationships can attest to my value as an honest hard-working individual. In my past role as MarketingDirector I have increased the company’s traffic, exposure and occupancy more than 30% in six months compared to prior years. When leasing I had the highest renewal rates by 10%. Through networking (social networking & partnerships) I have increased the marketing reach with a reduced budget from the previous years. Focus group surveys have established a higher caliber of event activities, which has resulted in greater resident retention and satisfaction. My client relation roles have allowed me to work with fortune 500 companies raising their annual revenues by more than $3 million with a single campaign implementation. Sometimes it's a thankless job, but I love the relationships I've made and the remarkable statistics and awards I've gained in my wake.

Being a UT Alumni, I am particularly interested in a competitive industry and diverse position such as my latest role as a creative and client relations manager. UT Austin offered a diverse community that stimulated my affinity to a multi cultural background. My experiences living overseas bring an understanding of interacting across cultural boundaries and the challenges that they present. These experiences are analogous to the need for building consensus and alliances within the well-known diversity of the marketing industry.

I will be furthering my studies, but I will simultaneously be working - like I said, I love furthering my skills.

I may decide to change it up every once in a while from a personal or colloquial standpoint to a noted more serious tone depending on how I feel. Enjoy and let me know what works best for you… Contact Info: Partial Online Portfolio (contact me for more)
