"You've just finished your screenplay—Now what?" 2 new dates!
A comprehensive one-day workshop (9:00-5:00) designed for the beginning screenwriter who may or may not have completed a screenplay and is beginning their journey toward being a professional. In a business where they stop reading after the first typo or format mistake, you need solid guidance to help navigate the choppy waters of Hollywood.
Veteran screenwriter/script doctor/consultant Mark Sanderson will share his fifteen-years of experience to teach you the practices that helped him to build and establish a career as a working screenwriter in Hollywood. You'll learn his techniques and disciplines that focus on the importance of the script as a tool and how to navigate the business side of a writer's career—from seeing the screenplay as only the beginning of your journey, treating your writing as a business, creating daily writing habits and disciplines, finding your unique style and voice, how to tackle rewrites and execute notes, pitching and loglines, how to deal with producers and directors, taking meetings, networking and building relationships, how to find representation and beyond. You'll learn how to avoid the pitfalls, recognize your weaknesses, and build your strengths with this "how to" survival guide to stay in the game—at the top of your game.
