  4. 4. Top 5 Screenwriting Tips – Heidi Ferrer • Concept is King: Come up with a great idea in a saleable genre. • Study Your Genre: Read screenplays and books about screenplay format. Watch movies with screenplay structure in mind. • Write and COMPLETE your script! Even write “The bad version.” Writing is rewriting. I recommend Final Draft software. • Get Notes: From people you trust. Always protect your work. • Use Your Connections: To get read by an agent/manager, assistant, etc. Be brave, be bold, never give up. Why not you?

  6. 6. Top 5 Screenwriting Tips – Johanna Stein • Don’t have a Fallback Plan, have a Meanwhile Plan: This is not the plan you have “IN CASE” success doesn’t happen. This is the plan you have WHILE you’re working on your success plan. • Be your own nagging mother-in-law: When you think a script is done, perfect, and ready to send – give it another pass. • “What a great idea! Let me sit with that and get back to you!” Learn how to take notes; in every “dumb” note lives a smart one. • Be professional & easy to work with. Few people are talented enough to continue working despite having an a**hole rep. • Shove yourself out of the nest: Create your own opportunities & deadlines. Be brave. Be fearless. Put your sh*t out there.
