   The Industry Standard

What would you ask someone who has read 30,000 screenplays? Someone who helps find scripts for A-List actors? Now is your chance to find out from a film executive, producer, and educator how to increase your odds of selling a script to Hollywood.

Christopher Lockhart is story editor at the venerable William Morris Endeavor company where he reads thousands of scripts every year, deciding which writers to represent or which scripts to pass on to his A-List acting clients. He has represented screenwriters and has produced films, and he knows what makes a script marketable in today's industry.

During this informative webinar, he will cover topics screenwriters need to know like:

  • What are a writer's most viable ways into the business?
  • What are the pros and cons of screenwriting contests?
  • When and how should new writers seek representation?
  • Does a script have to be high concept?
  • How can writers get in the room to pitch their material?
  • How can writers attract actors to their scripts?
  • When should writers consider making their own film?
  • What makes a script more attractive to producers?
  • What are some secrets to making dialogue pop?
  • How can you make sure the pacing in your script doesn't lag?
  • .... and much more!


As an aspiring screenwriter, you've asked these questions on message boards, at conferences, and to consultants. But now is your chance to ask a working Hollywood film executive what you need to know about pitching and selling your script in today's industry.

Don't miss this opportunity to find out how Christopher Lockhart helps writers break into the business and how you can use his knowledge to get the most out of your career.
