If you haven’t made it yet as a solo screenwriter,
why not give co-writing a try?
All great TV shows are written by teams; and since the the dawn of cinema, partnerships have been behind hits such as Casablanca, Citizen Kane, Pulp Fiction and every Pixar pic.
- have an instant sounding board
- find energy when you don’t have any
- complement any skill weaknesses
- get a different perspective on the story
- no more lonely writing nights
- focus on what you are actually good at
- build a broader marketing network
- share the load in the rewrite
- get free, instant feedback to your writing
The networking night is an informal event, and because screenwriters are naturally shy, we will help you make sure you get to talk to everyone in the room.
During the introduction, Karel Segers will talk about his process as a co-writer on three projects: a screenplay that made the Nicholl Fellowship top 10%, one that attracted Sam Worthington, and a commissioned 8-part European TV series currently in development.
Alone, the mind can wander.
But if you’re locked into a discussion,
there is a discipline, a commitment to
not quitting until some kind of answer is found.
