During the 4-day lab intensive, Mentors and Writers engage in rigorous script development through one-on-one meetings, small group and panel discussions, workshops and more to develop their scripts and their craft, and to build tools and strategies to achieve success.
In the subsequent 3-month Development Phase and the 2-month Market Strategy Phase, we guide writers through the revision process and offer development and market support with a team of partners, acclaimed screen industry leaders, and our development team.
