Finding Success in the Current Film & TV Industry Climate

The last few years have been a rollercoaster for screenwriters! Starting with the WGA’s action against agents in 2019, going into the pandemic and then the strike, there’s been a lot to adjust to on the screenwriting front.

And… so much noise.

Is the strike going to last a year! Is the TV contraction permanent? And what is the feature world looking like these days, with all of these changes?

The good news is that with all of this changes, screenwriters continue to break in and build screenwriting careers.

In this session, we will discuss all that you need to know about our ever-shifting landscape, and explore how to build the sort of successful screenwriting career that you are seeking.

In the context of working in today’s industry, we will explore: 

  • Getting representation in the industry today
  • What to expect from your reps, and what they will expect from you
  • Feature market realities: Selling features and pitches and landing Open Writing Assignments (OWA’s)
  • TV-land today: Staffing on shows and selling your pilot
