Reader @ HBO Films

Let's say you have this script, and you're ready to get started. You hustle and work at it, and then you get your script to a major studio or production company. Yay! Then you realize that the first person to read your script will be a reader and you start to wonder "who are these readers?", "what do they look for in scripts?", and "how can you impress them to continue down the development road?" 

To answer all this and more, we're thrilled to welcome Robert Potter to the Roadmap Stage. 

This 90-Minute Webinar Will Cover: 

  • What the readers are looking for
  • Who they are and how to impress them
  • How their opinions influence executives
  • Live Q&A
