The Filmmakers Table Read

Info about the table read:

Once a month, we filmmakers get together for an electrifying event. We read up to 30 pages of two scripts that are provided by local writers, in a cold, table read. This is a great opportunity for writers to hear their scripts out loud, read by a variety of voices. We give immediate and actionable feedback that will help with the next draft. Actors will practice their cold-reading skills and connect with filmmakers.

We read everything: shorts and features, series and episodic shows, screenplays, radio shows and stage plays. Writers, producers, directors, editors, actors and other filmmaking crew members are encouraged to attend. We also discuss topics that can help any writer improve upon their talent, such as books, writing software and techniques.

Date: Wednesdays – 1/15, 2/19, 3/18, 4/15, 5/20, 6/17, 7/15, 8/19, 9/16, 10/21, 11/18, 12/16.
Time: 6:45pm (Don't be late!)

Again, be sure to register. Info about scripts, time and location will be sent to you.
