The Starter Screenplay: Navigating the Hollywood Screenwriting Industrial Complex

Event Date: Saturday, July 26, 2014 || Speaker: Adam Levenberg || Check-in: 12:30 pm ||

As a former development executive on feature film projects for top producers, actors and screenwriters, Adam will provide an executive’s perspective to new screenwriters addressing questions like:
  • What script should you write next?
  • What essential elements are studio executives looking for in a spec?
  • How can you tell if someone likes your writing?
  • What questions should you ask an agent interested in representing you?
He will also provide “The Ten Commandments” of a starter concept to get the new screenwriter on the right track.
