The Critics Consensus on Rotten Tomatoes (98% Certified Fresh):
“Smart, funny, and just nostalgic enough, Girls5eva‘s intelligent insights are brought to brilliant life by its talented quartet, whose individual gifts come together to make sweet comedic harmony.”
SCRIPT FEST TV FAQ
What is Script Fest TV?
At Script Fest TV, we take successful and critically acclaimed TV pilots, read them aloud together, and then examine them scene by scene, page by page, and beat by beat. A great TV pilot must introduce the audience to the series’ unique world, an intriguing cast of characters, and ongoing conflicts, and the best creators make this look easy.
The goal of Script Fest is to study the masters. We analyze the overall setup, examine the dialogue and character development, and explore the thematic premise. We try to determine how the writers hooked the audience, keeping us coming back for more.
Who should attend Script Fest?
Much like a book club, Script Fest TV brings creative people together who love and appreciate excellence in storytelling.
For aspiring TV writers or screenwriters, analyzing award-winning and critically acclaimed scripts is a crucial part of learning craft techniques. We compare early drafts of these scripts to the finished products, which helps writers see the revision and editing process in action. We also learn to think like studio readers, development consultants, and story editors.
However, you don’t have to be a writer to attend Script Fest. TV and film fans are welcome to join in for a fun-filled educational and entertaining interactive live experience.
