WHAT WE DO THAT'S DIFFERENT
A writer, we'll call him Josh, was stuck. He liked the spec script he had written, but was it good enough to submit to others? Was it the best it could be? He needed input. Not just pages of notes from a script consultant, but the kind of “no idea is a bad idea,” free-flowing exchange found when a script is “tabled.”
Then, he read an article in “Creative Screenwriter” where Alex Kurtzman and Robert Orci said that throughout the writing process of “Star Trek” they would sit in a room with director J.J. Abrams and producer Damon Lindelof giving notes to each other and riffing. And, how "That kind of assistance every 30 pages just made it great by the end." “It was awesome.”
Where could Josh find a similar awesome experience? Well, right here at ‘The Writers Table’.
So, Josh shelled out the dough and sent in his script. What did he get in return? In a very short time, he was involved in a live discussion covering everything in his script. He experienced the creative rush that comes from the dynamic exchange of thoughts with a team of veteran comedy writers. An experience, by the way, that will come in handy as his career advances and he finds himself working with producers, directors, other writers and “the suits.”
Why not workshop your script at ‘The Writers Table’ like Josh and see if you can turn your spec into a sale?
