There are exceptions of course, but, in general, it’s pretty plain to see how a script is shaping up after ten pages.
IF READERS READ JUST TEN PAGES, THEY MAY MISS ONE OR TWO GEMS, BUT THEY’RE SAVED FROM HAVING TO READ FIFTY OR ONE HUNDRED SCRIPTS THAT MISFIRE.
This is the real reason why the First Ten Pages concept exists.
WRITERS HAVE A BIG PROBLEM
So, given how hard it is to get your script read in the first place, you absolutely need to be giving your first ten pages the best chance you can.
We can give you the tools to fix all that in our FIRST TEN PAGES MOT WORKSHOP
Here’s what happens:
You send us the ten pages of your script and a short (1 page) synopsis of the story by FRIDAY JUNE 24th.
Phil and I read them all, and work out which of us is best equipped to help you. We will divide you into two groups – of six – some to work with Phil, some with me.
On SATURDAY JULY 8th we all meet at Birkbeck College in central London, in either a morning or an afternoon session. We get going straight away and go around the six scripts.
In each group we will first read your script then either Phil or I will give notes and lead the discussion on what’s working and what is needs work.
Each of you will get approximately 30 minutes full focus on your script alone. You will also be able to hear the sessions of others in your group, so you can learn from them too.
It’s a very friendly, supportive atmosphere, with everyone encouraged to contribute as they want to, and we pride ourselves on making you feel at your ease.
(We will also be in the near by pub that evening if you want to come along to chat some more and meet the writers from the other session.)
You’ll come away from the day with the sure knowledge that the next draft of the opening of your script will be stronger, more engaging and altogether more likely to do your story justice.
