February 15, 2018 - February 15, 2018, the Basement Theatre, Auckland

Reading a script is easy. Assessing a script and giving useable feedback is a skill.

This Talk will discuss what to consider with character, structure, story, dialogue, tone and dramatic premise and how best to communicate that to the writer.
If you are part of a development team join us to hear about the fundamentals of assessing and writing notes that will improve the next draft of your project. Christina Milligan, Brendan Donovan and Dianne Taylor are script assessors and script writers with a wealth of hands on experience and expertise to share.
