Join us at our weekly Wednesday meetings (members and non-members welcome) to participate in:
- Member idea pitches ranging from a concept, logline, step outline, or script pages
- A break down of a film or portion of a film
- An interactive education session that covers anything from structure nuances related to different genres to “what makes a strong antagonist” to what a gainfully employed screen writer actually does
Process of Presenting Your Screenplay:
The following process enables us to provide you meaningful feedback early and often to aid in the development of your robust screenplay. Assuming you’re a member, your screenplay content is presented over multiple Wednesday meetings as defined below.
- Setup session: you present a verbal or written concept such as a logline / step outline / synopsis. Essentially, you present your story in broad strokes and receive feedback. You will not present script pages in this session. In next session, represent your modified work or move on to pages 1-15 session.
- Page 1-15 Reading: we read your screenplay pages 1-15. We play narrator and all of your characters. You do not read but rather listen and soak up the verbal ebb and flow of your work. In next session, represent your modified work or move on to pages 16-30 session.
- Page 15-30 Reading: we read your screenplay pages 16-30. We play narrator and all of your characters. You do not read but rather listen and soak up the verbal ebb and flow of your work. In next session, represent your modified work.
We do require presentation of your screenplay in the order above. IE You must present a step outline prior to page readings. Ideally you present, receive feedback, rework, then present again.
