Doing anything on Saturday, Sept 19th, 09? You're not? Then why not come to sunny Bournemouth and spend the afternoon with me and other like-minded peeps, learning about script reading and giving feedback!
"How to be a script reader" is one of the most searched-for terms on my site meter, plus I've had so many enquiries I thought now was the time to do an "Adrian Mead" and offer a one day course. This course is NOT just for those who want to be actual script readers, but those who want to be able to understand official readers' reports and give better feedback to their peers.
The course is officially recommended by The Scribefather himself (thanks Adrian) and will be run in association with Moviescope magazine. Amongst other things, the course will include what screen agencies might look for; how to give feedback to friends without falling out; what agents might ask their assistant to look for; how to write a reader's report synopsis and dealing with bad feedback. In addition to the day itself, course participants with be reading an UNPRODUCED spec and writing two lots of feedback - one informal, one "official" - which I will then read and give feedback on.
The price is just £65 - but to current subscribers of Moviescope or those coming through my blog, Facebook, Twitter, Talent Circle et al, you of course get 10% off, making it an even cheaper £58.50. The price also includes all refreshments and a light lunch. Please bring your business cards too, let's network!
Check out all the details of the course - there's information about travel and accommodation too. For those wanting to pay via Paypal to secure your place, there's now an official button on the right hand side for your convenience. If you'd rather not use Paypal, that's fine: please email me and we can make the necessary arrangements.
Hope to see you in September!
UPDATE: Already had a few bookings, but don't worry: there's no upper limit on class participants. If you want to save your pennies up for this, you got plenty of time yet...
