Keeping the Reader's Attention: The Gatekeepers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It’s easy to forget that a screenwriter’s first audience is not the viewer but the reader. The act of watching a film can be a passive encounter, whereas reading a screenplay requires a much different level of engagement. To this end, writers should be cognizant of how to craft a “reader-friendly” script. Whether it is submitted to a competition or a studio, there are key elements writers should embrace in order to maintain the reader’s attention. In this panel, hear from the industry “gatekeepers” on what to avoid and how to best engage, entertain, and encourage readers to keep turning the page!

This panel is open to Second Rounders and above.
