Script Coverage Events
We have created two special event workshops about script coverage to teach you valuable skills that will help you get a job in the film & TV industry. You will learn about script coverage, what it is and how to write it. This is a very useful and in-demand skill in today’s industry. Not only is it a great job skill that will help you get hired, but knowing how to write effective coverage will hone your own ability to read and write scripts.
The latest event took place on October 24th, 2017. Click here to view the recording of our 2017 Film Industry Essentials Script Coverage event.
