You’ve got a completed draft script – so now where do you take it?
How do you get it out there to the people who matter?
This session will cover the film, television and streaming industries, how to make sure you’re targeting the right audience and home for your project, and how to pitch it. This workshop will be:
* slightly terrifying – NOBODY likes pitching!
* … but ultimately really inspiring and energising
As always, you’ll be working with some fabulous fellow writers, supporting each other as you build your own confidence in selling your project. You’ll gain valuable insight into industry commissioning processes, learn about approaching agents (and whether or not you need one) and put together a portfolio of selling materials for your project that will take it to the next level – out of your head and into the world!
The workshop is open to anyone with either a draft script or a reasonably well-developed idea, who wants to start getting it out into the industry. It’s also a good opportunity for more experienced scriptwriters to hone their pitching skills.
