Festival Networking Course

 

This course is for writers who enjoy attending festivals and conferences but aren’t quite making the career connections they’ve been hoping for. 

By the end of this course you will:

  • Know what and who you should research before you get to the event
  • Have a working contact management system set up, ready for you to use at your next event
  • Have a technique for contacting anyone about 1-on-1 time during the conference
  • Understand how to keep in touch consistently so you can strengthen your industry network

If you’re a screenwriter, you’ve probably gone to a film festival or a writer’s conference with the hopes of making an important connection. If you’ve ever come home with a stack of business cards that sat accusingly on your desk until you gave up and stuck them in a drawer or worse, threw them out because you didn’t know what to do with them, then this course is for you.

Everyone knows the film industry is all about who you know, right? So this course gives you step-by-step instructions for creating a networking plan that will help you maximize the benefits of attending events while building genuine, mutually beneficial relationships and expanding your industry network.

If you set up and use this system for your next festival or conference you will set yourself apart from the majority of other attendees, paving the way for you to stand out in a sea of writers. If you would like to become a better networker, get more out of the events you attend, and learn skills that will grow alongside your career…

Script Reader Training

 

Learning how to read and evaluate scripts is a helpful skill to have for several reasons.

This course will be useful if you are…

  • a screenwriter who want to use script reading as a way to improving your writing skills. 
  • a film buff who would enjoy earning free passes to festivals by volunteering as a reader
  • looking for an entry level position in the film industry and need to enhance your skillset and resume

We’re told that reading other scripts is one of the best ways to learn screenwriting, and being a script reader will force you to do that more consistently. Writing script reports will also help you understand how your script is reviewed by the people you’re submitting to, enabling you to improve the quality of your submissions. If you’re regularly reading scripts and improving your ability to analyze concept, characters, etc, you can’t help but become a better writer.

If your goal is to land an entry level position in the film industry, chances are you’ll be asked to read scripts. Being able to list that skill on your resume will be an asset when applying for jobs.

In this course you will learn

  • How to analyze a script objectively
  • How to write a coverage report
  • How to keep improving your reading skills
  • Where to look for work as a reader
  • Unfortunately there isn’t a lot of script reader training out there.

Script reader training is usually offered in person, a couple times a year. You’ll pay $140-$200 plus any travel expenses. I created an online course to make the training more affordable and accessible, allowing you to learn on your own schedule.
