Breaking into the Business: Effective Strategies for Launching a Screenwriting Career
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
A well-executed spec script is required to break into the business, yet agents and managers constantly report that the vast majority of scripts submitted for consideration aren’t even close to being strong enough. The truth is that most writers waste valuable time writing scripts with little to no chance at success without knowing it.
