Writing script coverage is a useful and necessary skill for ANYONE entering the entertainment industry. This is an invaluable asset to pursuing a career in the entertainment industry – many jobs require coverage samples as part of the application process. And whether you’re an intern or assistant at a production company, agency, or management company, there’s a good chance you’ll be expected to write script coverage. Aspiring writers often cover scripts for a living while they hone their craft. And even if you never write coverage professionally, understanding the criteria on which a screenplay will be judged will help not only your own writing, but many other aspects of the industry as well.
Film schools don’t usually teach coverage writing. And with or without film school, there aren’t many ways to learn this skill outside of on-the-job trial-and-error. This workshop aims to give you the foundation you need to shorten that learning curve. It will equip you with an overview of what script coverage is, as well as practical tips for approaching the task of writing it.
Who should attend:
Writers, producers, filmmakers, content creators, actors, or ANYONE who wants to become a freelance reader, or simply to improve their own writing, and anyone hoping to enter the entertainment industry as an intern or assistant!
By the end of this class you’ll know:
• What coverage is, who uses it, and who writes it
• The parts of a coverage report and what the grid and pass/consider/recommend ratings mean
• What you must know about the craft and business before writing coverage
• The best practices for writing coverage effectively and efficiently.
PLUS – this will be a great networking event to meet other industry professionals!
