$10.00 if you're bringing pages.
Please bring at least six copies of ONE of the following:
1. Ten pages of an original feature screenplay (or a ten or less-page short film) that you wrote yourself.
2. A treatment that you wrote yourself (one to two-page synopsis of the plot) for a proposed original screenplay. Please keep treatments to two pages max.
Time permitting, we'll workshop whatever you bring. The amount of time we spend per work depends on how many screenwriters come by. If you haven't written a script or treatment, then come with your questions and a willingness to provide constructive feedback for others.
Regardless of what you bring, be sure to PRINT OUT COPIES so that we can read it together. If you don't print them out, we'll have no way to workshop your work! The number of copies necessary will depend on the total in attendance, so check back here close to the event for an estimated number. Printing out at least enough for two people to share would be appreciated!
If you haven't written a screenplay or treatment but are curious about the process, then we definitely have a place for you. For beginners, we highly recommend grabbing a copy of The Complete Screenwriter's Manual (http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Screenwriters-Manual-Comprehensive-Reference/dp/0321397932) and screenwriting software (free: CeltX.com, more features: FinalDraft.com)
