Arguably the most useful people new writers should work with are microbudget filmmakers. Very ‘arguably’ we might add.
Traditionally, these filmmakers usually write their own scripts because they don’t know many writers and when they do find one, said writer has already written a script that is several zeros outside of their tiny budget.
In short, the emerging filmmaker sector is crying out for micro budget genre scripts. Why not write one?
This panel of active and hungry filmmakers will share what you should write, how to work with microbudget filmmakers and what to expect.
We will discuss what kind of script you should you write and what production rules you need to play by in order to make it easy to shoot.
You may not make any money (though you might), you most likely won’t get thanked enough too, and for sure the filmmakers may well overshadow you with their egos (they are filmmakers right!?).
But you will get produced. You will also get the invaluable experience of taking your script through production, post production and sales. And you will get that all important IMDB credit too.
But most of all, you will get a relationship with a filmmaker who is as hungry for success as you are. And that makes for a powerful team.
