What filmmakers ACTUALLY do with your finished script – live script edit

Room: Tuke Cinema

with Chris Jones

What filmmakers ACTUALLY do with your finished script – live script edit image

So you have completed your script and it’s incredible… You send it off for production. How do filmmakers actually read your script? What will they do to it? How can you protect it?

In this live demonstration, we will attack a script like a filmmaker, giving you an insight into how better to polish you work before it is sent to the producers. It will also give you an insight into why changes that often seem random or unnecessary, get made, and why YOU should collaborate with the production team and not fight.

While the writers will be in the room, we will work on the script as though they were not present, giving you a window into what really happens when you hand the script over.

We want to thank the brave souls who have offered their work up in advance. Fortune favours the bold!

It’s going to get brutal…
