Viewing Your Script from the Executive Perspective

At a Glance

  • In-person seminar on the mind of the development executive
  • Offers an exec’s POV on scripts, pitching, and development
  • Teaches how to think, read, and write from the executive perspective

Find out exactly what’s going on in the minds of the industry insiders who can make or break your script! Viewing your Script from the Executive Perspective is a 90-minute in-person seminar that teaches you how to think, read, and write like a development executive.

Script consultant and instructor Daniel Manus read over 25,000 loglines and query letters during his time as a Hollywood exec, and now he’s ready to share his unique viewpoint on exactly what makes a buyer sit up and take notice.

This in-depth workshop will cover everything you need to know, including:

  • How development execs read a script – what they’re looking for and the difference between how a writer reads and an executive reads
  • The 3 questions executives think of while reading
  • The Top 13 Notes an executive gives and how to avoid them
  • How an exec hears/interprets a pitch
  • What it takes to get a “recommend” from a script consultant/reader
  • The development process - what to expect and how to survive it with flying
    colors

There will also be a Q&A session after the presentation, so you can get answers to all your burning questions about what really goes on behind the studio gates.

Ready to start thinking about your script strategically? Enroll in Viewing your Script from the Executive Perspective for invaluable access to a seasoned professional.
