with Luke Ryan
A script travels a long and winding road from the moment it sells to its debut as a fully finished feature film. Whether you’re the writer who sold the the spec or a gun-for-hire brought in for rewrites along the way, a knowledge of the entire process and the writer’s place in it is vital.
Luke will break down the entire journey from script to screen, from a detailed look at the first writer’s contract to the results after opening weekend, using one of his past films as an example. You’ll see examples of writer’s deals, production schedules, reshoot ideas, as well as in-depth insight into the marketing and distribution strategies employed by studios.
