Scripts that have been workshopped are often picked up by Producers and/or go on to form collaborations and produce the script and our WCA focus will be to get much more produced as part of our development this year = So, workshop it and get it seen! New writers are always welcome but it’s also good to see fresh work from writers who have submitted work in the past. Writers wishing to book a workshop space can submit scripts at any time, except on a workshop night – next submssions would be for the November WCA, 2 places already booked.
WCA 48hr film challenge entries will be judged Monday evening at an Awards Event closeby – GOOD LUCK to all WCA participants who had produced film entries in time for the competition, Neil, Jess, Bernd, and many others including their cast and crews, and to our own WCA Team entry ‘A shot in the dark!’ We will of course update you on the Winner and Awards! although everyone who entered is a Winner, the Awards are gravy, bisto ~~~~~~
