Halloween Table Reads – “10-31” (FREE)
Welcome to Halloween Screenplay Table Reads! Join us this week for a live readthrough of the “10-31” script from the 2019 Blacklist and discussion of the techniques used by screenwriters Peter Gamble & Ian Shorr!
“10-31” by Peter Gamble & Ian Shorr.
LOGLINE: A young woman takes her niece and nephew trick-or-treating and discovers a note inside a candy wrapper that says there’s a killer loose on her block.
Following the readthrough, we’ll chat about what you liked or disliked and why. How would you describe the main character and their journey? How do they change? What surprised you? Did you learn anything that was helpful for your own writing?
This event is completely free and open to everyone. Space is limited, so be sure to hit the RSVP button. Then join us in the Workshop channel on discord ( https://discord.gg/kQfrX3R7Zy )
Q: I don’t have a mic or don’t want to speak. Is it okay if I just join to listen and learn?
A: Absolutely! This event is entirely free and everyone is welcome to join.
Q: What’s the purpose of reading through TV pilots?
A: If you want to become a skilled screenwriter, you’ve got to read tons of pro scripts and write lots of your own scripts. And as you read thrillers, comedies, horror, action, dramas, etc, you’ll internalize the structure and and see what works.
