09:30 – 11:30 For Screenwriters: Developing Your Screenwriting Career
How do you create a sustainable career as a screenwriter? This session will explore crafting a writing CV (when you don’t yet have many or any produced writing credits), getting an agent/manager, developing as an artist inside a commercial industry, expanding your network and finding creative partners who will champion your writing.
11:30 – 12:00 Coffee break
12:00 – 13:00 For Screenwriters and Producers: Script Development: The Structured Ideal and the Messy Reality
What does an idealised script development process look like for writers and for producers and are they the same? And how do you cope with the messy reality of what a creative development process really looks like?
13:00 – 14:00 Networking Lunch for Screenwriters and Producers (lunch provided)
14:00 – 16:00 For Producers: Managing the Script Development Process
Develop your skills in evaluating scripts editorially and learn how to identify the right notes to give and when to give them. Hone your communication skills in creative conversations with writers and discover how to create momentum in your script development process.
The workshop fee is $75 for OSM members and $100 for non-members. To register, contact Tani Miki, Manager of Communications and Reporting at 204-927-5899 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
