Objective

The CineStory Foundation has always believed in helping writers find their voice. We’re entering a world in which the ways to tell stories are limitless. Those stories always begin with a blank page. Our goal with the TV/Digital Series Retreat is to assist writers, whether they long for the collaborative nature of Television or they dream of going out on their own to create their own web series.

Structured like the CineStory Feature Retreat, the CineStory TV/Digital Series Retreat will take place over three days in the beautiful mountains of Idyllwild, California. Attendees will receive three one-on-one, one and a half hour sessions with CineStory mentors during which they can discuss everything from the project they submitted for feedback to jump starting their writing careers.

CineStory Names TV Fellowship Winner

Robert Axelrod has been named the 2019 CineStory TV Fellow for his winning episodic spec comedy script BETTER THINGS - "Goy Vey", which impressed the judges by capturing the tone of the show while also showcasing the writer's own voice.

As this year’s Fellow, Robert will receive $1,000, free tuition and housing for this year’s TV Retreat, and a 12-month mentorship with 2 Hollywood professionals hand-picked to help advance his craft and career.

Robert is based in Los Angeles, originally hailing from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Since arriving in Los Angeles, Robert has used his love of words and entertainment to parlay himself to a career in entertainment business and legal affairs. He worked as the legal assistant on sixteen films, including the Academy Award nominated Mudbound and Isle of Dogs, along with Bright, Okja, Detroit, Isle of Dogs, The Old Man and the Gun, and the Academy Award winning Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. He currently works at Felker Toczek Suddleson Abramson LLP as a legal assistant covering clients such as Greg Berlanti, Pamela Adlon, Gabrielle Union, Mila Kunis, and Freddie Highmore.

He’s trained with both UCB and The Groundlings in Los Angeles and was a writer for the 2017 CBS Diversity Showcase.

His work has placed in several writing contests and fellowships, most notably as a quarterfinalist in the Academy’s Nicholl Fellowship, as a finalist for the Sundance Screenwriters Lab, PAGE International Screenwriting Competition, Austin Film Festival Screenwriting Competition, and ScreenCraft Pilot Launch Contest. He also had a project chosen as an official selection for the Producer Guild of America’s diversity fellowship program.

His work as a writer and producer has premiered at the Orlando and Huntington Beach International Film Festivals, screened at the London Comedy Film Festival, and been featured on Vimeo and Funny or Die.

In his spare time, Robert volunteers as a crisis service counselor with the Trevor Project, the nation’s leading suicide prevention and crisis intervention service for LGBTQ youth.
