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.
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:
"Ian reconnected me with the original inspiration for my screenplay and reminded me why I was writing it."
"Constructive advice that you immediately apply to
improve your script."
"Having someone else's perspective on my script helped me to step back and see it properly. My Script Doctor made me feel supported whilst giving me honest, concise feedback."
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!
