Script Swap & Table Reads (FREE)
Need some feedback on your feature film screenplay or tv pilot? During this meetup, we will read out loud and critique the first 5 pages of your screenplays in progress (or any other scene up to 5 pages), and assign script swap readers to provide feedback on your entire script.
This event is free for everyone to attend. Space is limited, so be sure to hit the RSVP button. If you have a scene to submit, please post your script in pdf format in the #scripts channel on the Script Camp discord ( https://discord.gg/SeBAJUGm7N ) prior to the workshop, along with the following info:
– Format (Feature, Pilot or Short)
– Logline (Any comps with similar tone?)
– Cast list of characters in the first 10 pages (and their ages/descriptions)
– What is the main problem you have with this script that you need help to fix?
Q: I don’t have a script ready yet. Is it okay if I just join to listen and learn?
A: Absolutely! This workshop is entirely free and everyone is welcome to join.
Q: My writing is ____ genre, is that okay?
A: Yes! Any genre is OK.
Q: I’m worried that my script sucks, should I still bring it?
A: This is a process. Nobody will be perfect. We’re here to support you, which means pointing out the parts that are awesome and providing honest feedback for improvement.
Q: My script is not in standard screenwriting format.
A: Please re-type your pages using screenwriting software before the meetup. If it is not in standard screenplay format, it’s difficult for readers to provide helpful feedback on the pacing and many other aspects of your script. Here’s a list of some free screenwriting software options you can use:
