Effective Script Reading


There's a new script reading course on the scene, run by the very brilliant Evan Leighton-Davis. Not only was he script editor on Origin (m'short film), he's one of the leading script consultants working in the UK today, moving and shaking with the best of them (BBC Films, Ealing Studios, Working Title, Pathe, Warner Brothers etc etc).

Evan's rounding up all his expertise and industry savvy into the course, so it's ideal for folks who want to sharpen their development instincts and/or for those who want to know how to find those much sought after reading gigs. The fee is £150, which includes detailed course notes, a contacts overview of the UK industry, and refreshments. Places are strictly limited so please book early to avoid disappointment (although more courses are planned right through to May). It's cheaper than Script Factory and will take place in London in the New Year, more details below.

How to write great script reports and source paid script reading work

This course teaches participants how to analyse film scripts effectively and produce quality coverage, as well as delivering knowledge on how to source regular script reading work in the UK and beyond. Ideal for those new to the industry looking to build a career in development, sales or distribution, the course is also valuable for people looking to develop contacts in development and earn an extra revenue stream from script reading.

The course focuses on how to deliver constructive feedback to writers both in person and on the page, and participants examine both produced and unproduced scripts, and also deliver a script report which will be marked by the course tutor. The course also delivers an overview of the key production companies, distributors, sales agents and funding bodies operating in the UK marketplace, for whom script readers are vital.

I can confirm, if any confirmation is needed, that Evan Leighton-Davis is a tremendous man of iron.
