Breaking Down Script Development Lingo

Ever heard an exec say something like: “I’m looking for a grounded, high-concept genre film”? Join Stage 32’s Allen Roughton and learn to decipher what execs are actually saying when they tell you what they’re looking for!

As the Stage 32 Writing Services Coordinator, I spend most of my time talking to execs about the kind of material they want, specialize in, or think is the next big thing. And I have to admit that sometimes it feels like I need a translator. High-concept? Grounded? Smart? Supernatural… but not horror? A Ten-by-ten? What the heck are these people talking about? Luckily, I’ve googled my heart out, asked a ton of questions, immersed myself in the script development world, and learned their language so you don’t have to! Now I’ve put it all together and will break down the lingo of Screenwriting Development.

Writers' Insights Workshop

Writers’ Insights is a monthly workshop designed to gain better understanding of your writing. A friendly environment where participants will bring 10 pages of their work (please bring enough copies for all attendees) to read aloud as a group. Constructive feedback is given as to how the readers experienced your story…what worked well, where clarity may be needed and possible solutions for a rewrite. We will cap the readings at 4 participants per meeting so everyone get equal time.
