Group Kickoff Meeting!

  • April 2, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This first meeting will be a chance for us to get to know each other, discuss goals for the group, and talk logistics. We'll also get to the heart of the matter, covering the basics of spec screenplays. While I've got an agenda to keep us on track, I want to keep this casual and give everyone a chance to share their ideas.

All members are encouraged to come and say Hi. Even if you can't make it the entire time, stop by!

    Great start. Focused and disciplined...for the most part. Definitely well worth the time, the drive, and the effort. You will get out of it what you put into it.

    Great article that summarizes "What makes a great screenplay". http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2013/mar/15/john-yorke-best-screenwriting (Curt - the feature photo is from Casablanca!)

    March 21, 2013

    • Curt S.

      Ha! As it should be! Though Casablanca's screenplay was cobbled together from lots of pieces.
