We all know that sinking feeling when we’ve sent in a script that we’ve sweated over, lost sleep over, even sacrificed boozy nights out for, only for someone to come back at us with notes. And to top it off, these notes actually make things better!
Who are these wizards and what is their dark power to take your script from good, to great, to…OUTSTANDING.
Script editors are often overlooked, but the best ones out there are the lynchpins holding together the disparate priorities of the writer, the story, the producer and the audience. They are essential players in escorting your stories on their journey from script to screen.
But let’s look at that dark magic. Let’s find out what a Script Editor’s day-to-day looks like as they shepherd a project to the finish line. How do they juggle their many different responsibilities? And how can you get the best working relationship with your script editor?
