Tired of rejection letters? How to produce your own screenplay. image

Watch This Session

Getting a producer attached to your script can be tough, especially if you are an unproduced writer. Have you considered producing it yourself?

At first this may seem terrifying, but a growing number of screenwriters are teaming up with filmmakers, directors, actors and other creatives, to get their work shot and seen.

And producing is not rocket science or alchemy. As you will learn from the speakers in this session, it’s largely problem solving and the art of persuasion. Plus of course, a bucketload of passion.

In this session you will learn the tricks of the trade, the pitfalls to avoid and learn directly from those who have just done it themselves.

And of course, producing your own work means YOU stay in greater control of your own script and destiny. Who doesn’t want that?

The world is changing and the smart writers are changing with it. Are you?
