What to expect at this Open Screenplay Table Read event ?
Screenplay telling helps novice writers openly share their writing, overcome drawbacks by openly taking Free Feedback from fellow writers and later fixing the flaws in the Screenplay on their own schedule. No Pressure.
unlike other Production Houses – where Client Commitments, Timelines/Deadlines, Market Pressure – are just a handful among tens of other issues to finish early, and then the writer is scrutinized for writing quality issues.
This group initiated by Filmy Arts (filmyarts.com) – invites Fresh / Experienced Writers for a friendly discussion and constructive creative feedback.
It’s a Golden Opportunity for everyone ready to learn and focus on developing stories worth sharing.
