Screenwriters Beat just came out with two new episodes!
If you ever wanted to know a little more about crowdfunding, you’ll want to see Episode #27. The Queen of Crowdfunding, Dawn Fields, joins the panel of working screenwriters to tell us a little of what she’s learned. And she’s learned a lot!
Checkout the Crowdfunding episode HERE.
The Screenwriters Beat panel of working screenwriters are at it again with the first two episodes of Season 2! In Episode #21, the panel plays Ketchup, filling us in on what they’ve been doing during their winter break. The busy bunch have been on movies sets, networking at conferences and doing what they do best — writing! In Episode #22, the panel discusses how long you can pitch a movie idea. Is there a time limit on pitching a concept? Tune in and find out.
Ever wondered how to respond to a producer’s email or what scenes NEED to be in a genre script? Well… wonder no more.
In Screenwriters Beat Episode #17 – How Industry Pros Talk to Writers, you’ll get some insight into what to expect. And how to react. (Hint: if a producer contacts you, smile. No matter what they say, it’s a good thing. Keep building that connection.)
In Screenwriters Beat Episode #18 – Obligatory Scenes, you’ll hear some scenes that audiences expect to see. The panel also plays a crazy game of Outlining — which includes some obligatory scenes.
But we hope you watch them both!!!
After a little break, Screenwriters Beat is back with two new episodes. Check them out at the links below — and happy writing!
Episode #11 – Part 1 – Pump Up Your Screenwriting Career

Plus, don’t miss Episode #12 – The Ins & Outs of Rewriting. Working screenwriters usually work on rewrites. And our panel shares some tips that can help with a rewrite assignment or your own spec rewrite. Follow this LINK to Ep. 12.
Our talented panel of working screenwriters have been working hard on new Screenwriters Beat episodes. We just posted Episodes 9 & 10 on YouTube. Episode #9 is about Branding yourself as a screenwriter. Should you? Check it out HERE. Episode #10 is about Genre Pitfalls. They exist and we share how to avoid some of them. Check it out HERE.
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!
