Script Analysis Readers Class
Event Date: Saturday, February 18, 2017 || Speaker: Melessa Y. Sargent || Check-in: 12:30 pm ||
Yes, it’s time again to offer our periodic Readers Training/Script Analysis Class for Feature Films and Television. The purpose of this class is twofold: For you, the member or guest, it gives a solid grounding in script analysis – how to break down stories, characters, and dialogue, what to look for, and how to create constructive criticism. For the Network, it expands our pool of volunteer readers for our Hollywood Outreach Program (“HOP”), Television Outreach Program (“TOP”), and High Concept Screenplay Competition (“HCSC”). So it’s a win-win situation! See more details below:

As many of our guest speakers in the past have said, and many of our members have learned for themselves, reading and analyzing scripts is one of the best ways to improve your own writing! It’s so much easier to see both glaring problems and brilliant writing in work that is not your own – and once you see it and know what to look for, you can then apply it to your own scripts.
Over 500 members have taken this class over the past years, and not only have they had fun, most of them have reported improvement in their craft. Several members have also gotten industry reading jobs based on what they learned in the class and later applied while reading for Hollywood Outreach and TV Outreach.
So come on out and learn the ins and outs of Script Analysis, and find ways to improve your craft!
