Day Three (Date TBC) // Story Pitch and Refining Ideas with Sam Horley for feature projects
Objective: To get a handle on the real world of film sales and distribution and stress test your individual projects. Learn to think like a producer and your writing will become more viable.
Location: Venue TBC
Date: Date TBC
Sam Horley will take your project through a series of exercises, move it into the real world where we will find out whether it’s got life as a commercial project, and what tweaks and rewrites could make all the difference. This is ALL about produceability, viability and shifting the writer into the mindset of producer, backer, sales agent and ‘talent’. This is a small group and everyone will get individual feedback from Sam.
My fear has gone south! Now my life will go in the opposite direction // 10 Stars (out of 5)"
