Working with script editors and producers

The following message is a plug for a one-day workshop happening this October in Edinburgh. I don't normally endorse such things, but it's hosted by my former mentor Adrian Mead and features former Inspector Morse & Waking the Dead script editor Philip Shelley. So I figure this is well worth the mention...

No doubt you've heard that getting work in the film and TV industry is a case of, “Not what you know, but who you know.” Guess what? It’s true. Talent will get you so far but relationships are where the business gets done. Getting someone interested in your work is only the start of the process.

This information packed one day course is your chance to learn from successful Writers, Script Editors and Producers about what happens next. The course is hosted by Adrian Mead and Clare Kerr of Mead Kerr. Lead speaker and tutor is Philip Shelley, one of the UK’s most experienced script consultants and editors.

Shelley has worked as a script editor and producer for 15 years. He has script edited numerous projects including A Good Murder, Waking The Dead, Inspector Morse, Kavanagh QC and many more. During this info-packed day Philip, Adrian Mead and a panel of Writers and Producers will explore:-

• What can script editors do for writers
• Handling rewrites – fighting your corner without falling out.
• “It’s not what you know…” - relationships that get you work.

VENUE: St Columba's-by-the-castle, 14 Johnston Terrace, Edinburgh EH1 2PW
FEE: £85.00 (includes lunch and refreshments)

Philip is great*. I'll be there despite having to travel up from Manchester - which isn't the easiest trip.

*I am biased: he said I'm a good writer :-) he even put it in writing.
