January TV WRITERS' meeting

  • Jan 13, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Location: We'll meet from 5pm to about 7pm at Oz's home in Pasadena.

The scripts: At this meeting we'll be discussing two scripts:

First up is Merav's TV drama pilot script "Sue Chef," in which a female chef opens her own restaurant in New York City and is facing cut throat competition. You can find the script in the Files section of the website here:

http://files.meetup.com/1610124/Sue_Chef.pdf

And since I believe there's still a slot available, I (Oz) figured we might as well revisit a TV action pilot I presented to the group last February that I will soon be partially rewriting: "Maximum Risk," in which a mysterious benefactor runs a select team of special operatives using advanced threat assessment techniques -- but is trusting him the biggest risk of all?

It's a bit unorthodox to present the same script twice, so I just want to emphasize that reading my script is in every way secondary: if you only have time to read one, please just read Merav's.

How our meetings work: If you RSVP 'yes' then please download and read the entire script in advance of the meeting, then come along on the day with your feedback for the author!

If you're new to the group, you can find more information about how our meetings work here:

To print or not to print: Some members print out the script and make notes on it then hand this to the author after the meeting; some members prefer to bring everything along on their laptops then email their notes to the author later; and some members only give verbal feedback at the meeting itself. Basically, whatever you decide to do is fine - the most important thing is to read the material and come along prepared to discuss it!

Parking: There is ample free street parking in the area.

    I love digging deeper into structure and cast construction. We got to do that with Oz's pilot. Made me happy.

    The discussion about each piece of work was both positive and impactful. Everyone was positive about being supportive and helping improve others' work with constructive feedback.
