Just like gambling, or checking in and out of Twitter; screenwriting is a habit. It's something you either do, or don't do. The hardest part is sitting down and doing it.
So I'm offering you a reason to do it.
This is open to amateur screenwriters, seasoned professionals, and anything in between.
Here's the deal.
For a one week period between Sunday 3rd June-Sunday 10th June, I will support and mentor you in the creation of a short screenplay.
Your task, should you choose to accept it; is to complete a screenplay in the one week period detailed above.
The script must be no longer than 15 pages.
I am particularly keen to help people who have been struggling to get their ideas down on to paper recently. Maybe you have been too busy, or lacking on confidence. This program is aimed at helping (hell, forcing) you to overcome these issues.
At the end of the program, I will publish the Screenplays on Kid In The Front Row.
You will retain sole authorship/writing credit, and you will completely own your material. I will simply support you in writing it, and will publish it here at the end (gaining you exposure).
This opportunity will only be for SIX PEOPLE. You will have full email access to me for the week -- I will set you deadlines, and will also be on hand to help you with any creative issues/ideas you have. We will collaborate in any way you need to get the projects completed!
1. Please email me with your name, location, and a little bit about who you are and why you would like this opportunity.
2. Share with me an idea you have for a script. It may be a very strong idea, or it may be a seed of a feeling of an idea that's been floating around in your head somewhere out of reach for years. So I don't need a big treatment, I just need a paragraph or two to get a sense of it.
I am hoping to support writers of all levels, from a variety of backgrounds.
DEADLINE for applying is FRIDAY 1st JUNE 2012. Please only apply if you are serious about writing. If you are too busy or will use your pets/children/health as an excuse for not completing your assignment, then please don't contact me.
That sounds like so much fun - very generous of you. I will be on vacation that week and am committed to going it unplugged, old school with just a notebook in hand with my toes in the sand - otherwise, I'd be begging you to pick me.ReplyDelete
