Way back in post one of this series—we’re on post three now, if you’ve lost count—I said that my end goal was to take at least one, though currently considering one full-length feature film, and two TV series, to the London Scriptwriters Festival (LSF) next April. To be able to do that, I need a full script, but more importantly at this stage, I need a log line and a fully-fledged pitch. Those two must be absolutely perfect, even if the script itself is a bit raggedy.
Just look around any restaurant, or even street food area, and witness the number of people taking a snap of their recently-arrived food. The growth of decent cameras on phones has turned everyone into photographers, and social media has given them a platform to show them on.
Okay, I admit it—I did it just to see if anyone was actually reading;
Next year—on the 17th April, since you ask—I will be attending the London Scriptwriters Festival (LSF), with a view to sell my latest screenplay to the massed throngs of agents, producers, and directors that invariably turn up for the event. The problem is, I haven't yet put metaphorical pen to paper yet, and beyond having a vague outline of my story set in my mind, I have nothing of substance to show them.
