Watch This Session

If writing a script and getting it optioned is only half the story, how does a screenwriter make sure he/she stays the distance without being ejected along the way?

What should you do to make sure you are invaluable to the project in its entirety?  Whose hearts do you have to win and when?

This session will cover all aspects of the painful process from collaboration, politics, relationships and the mechanical details from option through development to final curtain.

Plus the most important learning of all – the battles to lose in order to win the war!
