recommends Scriptwriter's Network.
Is anyone a member? Can anyone confirm whether this is a good way to meet the future
bane of your existence
person who creatively completes you?
I joined Scriptwriters Network in 2004, and would recommend it to anyone.
They've got a basic muppetfilter in place, in that you don't get in without a completed screenplay.
(Note that they're not asking for a good screenplay - just something complete and in the correct format. Sure, it's not foolproof, but as a first cut to weed out the utter beginners it's a pretty useful one.)
The guests are good - when I was there Dean Devlin talked about his writing, and Rob Thomas spoke about this new show that he'd just finished the pilot for called Veronica Mars, and how he was hoping it'd get picked up.
I also met some real smart people, which led to me joining a writers' group of people who give good comment, several of who are now employed in the industry.
And meetings are on a Studio Lot. Which meant a lot to me back then. Still does.
I'm back in London for a while, and there's no London chapter, but to anyone in LA, I say get to it.
I see there's a San Francisco group... I wonder if it's worth joining if I might leave for Chicago in the Fall (and there's no chapter in Chicago, which is insane!!).
From what piers says, it looks pretty helpful. As a college graduate, I find myself a little worried about not having anyone reviewing and commenting on my work anymore...
Your blog is very good, by the way. And your books are top of the line.
