Good News — Episode 6 is in the House!!

Posted on

Screenwriters Beat has posted yet another fun, informative show about life for screenwriters that have made their start in Hollywood and are working in mid to low budget movies!

Episode 6’s main topic is Writing to a Budget. The producer’s budget. What things make a script more expensive to film, as well as a general idea of budget ranges.

Plus, do you need a Manager or an Agent? Our panel of working screenwriters weighs in on that much-asked question. (Hint: none of them currently have a manager or an agent. But all good things come in time.)

Find Episode 6 HERE.

More episodes coming in the near future, but please checkout and like the six we’ve completed!

NEW Screenwriters Beat Episode 5 – Writing Partners

Posted on Updated on

We’ve just put up a new episode of Screenwriters Beat, where working screenwriters chat about the biz. Episode 5’s main topic is Writing Partners. Do you need one? And, heck, why not?

Also covered in the episode is a fun game of Show & Tell, where our screenwriters share the screenwriting books that have meant something to them along the way. And still do!

Plus, they take an audience question about writing a script with a concise or narrative style.

Show Time! Tonight!

Tonight’s the night for the recording of Screenwriters Beat’s first two episodes. They will be live on YouTube (I’ll post the viewing link on Twitter) but they will be published on YouTube to check out later. (And I’ll post that link here).

Since we are doing two shows at the same time, there will be a down period between them. I’ll post a second viewing link on Twitter just before we go live for the second show.

Screenwriters Beat shows should run between 10 to 15 minutes. And they’ll be filled with working screenwriter information and all the fun that comes when you get a group of creative people together.

Hope you can join us!
