I hope you had an exceptional weekend, and that you're looking forward to a productive week.
WEDNESDAY @ 7PM LIVE ONLINE WORKSHOP: Swiftly Vetting, Editing & Finalizing a New Screenplay Prior to Pitching It (Sign Up HERE)
One of the worst things that can happen to a screenwriter is to get stuck in infinite edit mode. Reworking a screenplay 400x doesn't make it better, it just wastes your time.
Professional screenwriters have a hard time making a living if they churn out just one spec screenplay a year. In order to earn a good living from screenwriting, you need to be able to write screenplays quickly, and you need to know for sure they are good before you ship them out.
In this workshop, we review how to confirm your screenplay has a great collection of characters and good plot, that actors like it, that audiences like it, and how to ensure there are no errors in spelling, grammar, and format that will turn people off. This process takes a month rather than a year, and gives you the confidence required to pitch your screenplay because you know, for a fact, that it’s good.

UPCOMING LIVE ONLINE EVENTS
JUNE 1 @ 7PM Creating Voices using Digital Voice Creators and Emulators (Sign Up HERE)
In this workshop, you lean how to create and buy digital voices you can use to read books, use in cartoons, and create voice over. If you are a producer, these tools can save you a great deal of time and money in production. They can also make it easier for you to localize your projects into multiple languages quickly (English, French, Italian, etc). It will help screenwriters create virtual table reads that help them hear their words before they submit their work for producers.
And for Actors, these tools can help them create a digital version of character voices they can license and sell. This can help them earn more money. Imagine being able to create a voice that people pay you a license fee to use for years to come. You create the character, determine how it speaks, then your avatar goes to work generating revenue for you. Companies are hiring actors to create digital voices for a wide variety of purposes these days. This workshop will give you insight into how these tools work and how they are created.
JUNE 8 @ 7PM Buying Computers for Much Less & Renting/Running High Speed Virtual Computers Online for Under $1/ Hour (Sign Up HERE)
You can’t work in as a creative professional without having a computer. Sometimes, when you are producing an animated project, or a virtual production film or series with digital sets and backgrounds, you need one or a dozen very high-powered computers to get the job done. In this workshop, you learn some ways to buy and rent PC’s, Mac’s, very quickly and cost effectively. You will find this a very important workshop if you don’t have a lot of money to spend on your computer and/or you need access to high-power, high-speed computers for yourself and your team for under $1 an hour. You may find this workshop an absolute lifesaver the next time your computer breaks, or the next time you need a very expensive computer pennies on the dollar.
VIRTUAL PRODUCTION FOLLOW UP
If you attended the event at PRG Virtual Production event on Thursday, I hope you had a chance to check out all the virtual production technologies they demonstrated, including the giant LED screens and the wicked green screen techniques.
If you are a producer making a film or TV project, you have to check out these solutions because your competitors are using them. Shooting on 3D sets is faster, cheaper, safer, and easier and that saves you and your investors money, so you all earn more when you sell your work. Remember we have several recorded workshops that cover Virtual Production. Check them out at https://nancyfultonmeetups.uscreen.io/search?search=virtual%20production
