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!
