What a weekend! With our biggest team of Script Doctors yet, the Euroscript Script Surgery welcomed around 160 LSF delegates, and offered guidance on next drafts, treatments, formats, pitches, and even initial ideas.
Our army included many who will be familiar to delegates from previous festivals, as well as to those who attend our regular courses, Development Workshops, and use our Script Feedback services.
As those who have met us before know well, we take a sincere interest in making sure the writers we work with feel they have the tools to create the very best version of their screenplay.
Nowadays there is almost as much advice about how to write a successful screenplay as there is about how to be a successful parent! We often meet people who are overwhelmed with the task, and feel delighted when we find we have been able to make things seem a little less confusing. Delegates' thoughtful feedback collected over the three days has certainly made us feel that we accomplished our mission:
Of course the London Screenwriters' Festival also provides an amazing opportunity to network and catch up with colleagues past and present. We were particularly excited for Jonathan Asser to be taking part in one of the Script-to-Screen sessions, as Anne Woods, Charles Harris and Paul Gallagher have all enjoyed working with him on "Starred Up" before it took UK cinemas by storm earlier this year. Read Paul's interview with Jonathan.
It was also a wonderful chance for Charles to meet those eager to purchase his new book the Complete Screenwriting Course. After selling out, Hodder & Stoughton even had to ship more in to satisfy demand!
THE ONLY PLACE TO TALK ABOUT THE CRAFT OF SCRIPTWRITING.
