11:30 WHAT'S THE BIG IDEA?
Does the idea of pitching your idea bring you out in a cold sweat? Can pitching be (dare we say) fun? Get some tips on how to avoid the common pitfalls of pitching as well as tools on how to present your big idea confidently!

12:30 LUNCH

13:30 SCRIPT SURGERY
Need help developing your great idea into a final draft? This session with a leading development producer will help you identify where your script needs the most work.

14:45 THE CASTING CALL
Script? ✔️ Budget? ✔️ Cast? We're joined by an up and coming casting director on avoiding common casting mistakes, luring that top talent and how to get the best out of your actors.

16:00 WHAT'S YOUR OTHER JOB?
Copywriter by day, screenwriter by night. How can you get your project off the ground and have a day job too? We'll hear from a panel of writers and directors on how your can transfer your skills and eventually turn your passion projects into a career.

17:00 END


Sunday 19th November


10:00 MOVING ON UP!
Looking to make that leap from production department to producing? Get some top tips on climbing the production ladder from one of the industry's leading producers


11:15 IN THE EDIT
Step inside the edit suite for a masterclass on visual storytelling from a leading editor across shorts and features.


12:30 LUNCH

13:30 THE SOUND OF
It's often said that a good sound designer can help transform your film. We'll hear from one designer on the collaborative nature of their role and what they need from you, the director.


14:45 BEYOND THE BUZZWORD: OPPORTUNITIES IN VR
VR is the buzzword of the moment, and a brand new form of storytelling that is setting the industry ablaze with opportunities. A panel of directors and producers will showcase how to get your head around new technologies and the opportunities it can offer filmmakers.

16:00 THE D WORD
The dreaded 'd' word: distribution. What do you do when you're film is done? How do you negotiate with a distributor? How do you know if self-distribution is the right way to go? So many questions and no clear answers. We go in depth with a case study of a succesful small release to understand what is distribution done right.

17:00 DRINKS
What better way to round off Wired Women than a drink (or two!) on us and a spot of networking with fellow filmmakers and speakers from across the weekend.
