• SCRIPT CLUB

    IT'S LIKE A MONTHLY BOOK CLUB,

    BUT FOR SCREENWRITERS.

    Hosted by  Luke  Foster

EACH MONTH, A GROUP OF SCREENWRITERS GET TOGETHER FOR A DEEP-DIVE, ANALYTICAL DISCUSSION OF A PRODUCED SCREENPLAY.

Come and join  us, It's free.

This focuses on good screenwriting craft, whether that’s an evocative line of description, a story beat that effectively reveals character or a theme that resonates throughout the script. Script Club meetings are held online and are also streamed live on CenterFrame’s video channel, with a trimmed down version additionally posted after the event. All screenwriters in the CenterFrame community can take part in the meetings, suggest scripts to discuss and even set up their own events.

IT'S ABOUT THE SCRIPT

Anyone attending a Script Club meeting must have read that month’s screenplay and not just have watched the film.

No  General  Opinions

Discussions should focus on specific aspects of the script and the writing, not on general opinions about, or criticisms of, the film as a whole.

No Self Promotion

No one discusses, or pitches, their own screenwriting projects.

EASY TO  FIND SCRIPTS  ONLY

Scripts chosen for discussion must be available to read for free online.

A FEW MORE WORDS ABOUT SCRIPT CLUB

SOME  questions  you  might  ask

How does Script Club work?

Before each meeting, a produced screenplay is chosen for discussion and announced in advance to all members of the club, giving everyone who wants to attend the meeting time to read it.

The meeting begins with the writer who chose that month’s script talking about why they selected it and giving some background information about the screenplay. This is followed by an in-depth discussion about the script between a panel of writers.

The meeting is then opened up to all attendees, who can raise points for discussion, and comment on aspects of the script and the screenwriting, they’d like to highlight.

Who can take part?

Script Club is open to writers at all stages of their career, from those with produced credits, to those with projects in development, to those just starting out.

Can I suggest a script?

Yes, anyone is welcome to choose a script for discussion. This can be a feature film or a TV script and can be from any era and in any genre.

An English-language PDF of the screenplay must be available for free online. This should be the shooting script or an early draft of the screenplay and not a transcript.

Some good resources for screenplays include:
