ADVANCE SIGN UP FOR "THE REWRITE WITH TERRY ROSSIO"!
Terry Rossio, Academy Award-nominated writer of SHREK, DÉJÀ VU, THE MASK OF ZORRO, and the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN films, is one of the many new speakers on board for the October Conference. Terry's attended more Conferences than not in our 18 year history, and always comes with tons of advice, lessons learned, and words of inspiration, which he generously shares with registrants. Often until 2am in the morning at the Driskill Bar. This year, he's proposed a unique workshop: "The Rewrite with Terry Rossio."
In "The Rewrite with Terry Rossio," he will focus on the challenges one faces when they sit down to do a rewrite -- whether of their own work, or of someone else's. Attendees of this special workshop are asked to bring a scene from their script in Final Draft, on a Mac-compatible flash drive. Terry will randomly pick someone, and demonstrate, live, how he would rewrite the scene. He will go through as many as possible in the course of the workshop.
This workshop is open to the first 30 Conference or Producers Badge holders to respond. So, how can you take advantage of this incredible learning experience? (Seriously, you're guaranteed to get invaluable nuggets of applicable wisdom from this even if he doesn't get to your scene.)
If you already have a Producers Badge or Conference Badge, just forward your confirmation e-mail to email@example.com with the words "The Rewrite with Terry Rossio" in the subject line. Otherwise, you can purchase your Conference/Producers Badge here and then send an e-mail including your name, mailing address and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org with the words "The Rewrite with Terry Rossio" in the subject line. And, if you have a Lone Star or a Weekend Badge, you can call our office at 800.310.3378 to upgrade your Badge and then - you guessed it - send an e-mail including your name, mailing address and phone number to email@example.com with the words "The Rewrite with Terry Rossio" in the subject line.
Again, this workshop is only open to the first 30 Conference and Producers Badge holders to respond, so sign up now!
