Special session:
Karol Griffiths – Rewrites / Revisions
Development consultant, script editor and writing mentor Karol Griffiths will guide a session focusing on Rewrites / Revisions. Karol will illuminate the rewriting-process: The preparation before entering meetings, the interpretation of producers’, editors’ and development executives’ input, the decipherment between valuable and less effective notes, the communication with mentees – facing common script problems, and a crucial point: Working under deadlines. Her long experience in the US and in Europe includes work with the Coen Brothers and Steven Spielberg, for Warner Brothers, Universal, Disney Studios, BBC Writers Room and The Literacy Consultancy London.
