How To Get Your Scripts Read By Investors, Agencies and Studios

We all know it's difficult to get your projects read by the funders, decision makers, and deal makers in Hollywood. So how can producers break through this seemingly impenetrable barrier? A good place to start is Roland Tec's popular Art of the Synopsis workshop.

Writer/Producer/Director Roland Tec will conduct a seminar for those interested in improving their own synopses through an interactive workshop with fellow producers. Modeled on his popular Art of the Synopsis workshops which he has offered across the country for members of the Dramatists Guild of America, this workshop will be tailored to producers who have a completed script for a narrative film. Art of the Synopsis is a small group exploration of the question: How best to position my project for investors, studios, agents, and distributors? Bring your one-paragraph synopsis to the session and receive vital feedback from colleagues on marketing your narrative feature project.

To apply for a spot, interested PGA members may submit ONE synopsis (250 words maximum) of a completed feature screenplay they currently have the rights to develop. In cases where the writer is a close producing partner, PGA members are welcome to invite the screenwriter to accompany them to the workshop as a team. Interested PGA members should submit their synopsis in the required box online when they RSVP. NOTE: This is not a pitch seminar. Only feature length projects with completed screenplays are eligible to apply.

Please note: Space is extremely limited. Interested members will be notified no later than Friday, September 23rd if they have secured a spot.
