Script doctors are the unknown heroes of the script development phase. They come in at the last minute to fix a script before production can start, and they often remain anonymous or uncredited (but get paid well for that).

In this 3-hour OnDemand webinar by Script Doctor Cody Smart, you’ll learn the difference between a script analyst, script consultant, and script doctor, and how script doctors address the rewriting or polishing process of a script. Cody covers how to deepen concept and world, how to fix structure, how to enhance characters and flesh them out, how to address characters’ relationships and interactions, how to escalate conflict and drama, how to work on specific scenes, how to elevate the dialogue, and how to best tackle and exploit theme, all while staying true to the essence of the script assigned to doctor as you take it to the next level.

This OnDemand webinar provides insight into the life of a working script doctor, what steps you need to take to become one, and how you can have a career as a script consultant and doctor, another avenue for Screenwriters.
