Ask a producer or agent how long into a screenplay or book before they know if the writer is a strong one, and they’ll tell you they can tell from the very first page. Ask them how many pages they’ll give a weak manuscript before they give up on it? Ten pages. As a writer you only have 10 pages to impress your buyers, and as a storyteller, those 10 pages are crucial for cementing a stellar overall script. In this workshop, we’ll discuss the essential technical and story components that will both elevate your opening and put you on a path to greatness for your entire story!
