Many thanks to Phil Gladwin, head of Screenwriting Goldmine, for getting in touch with this eye-opening graphic on how to beat “the gatekeepers”, such as script readers, not to mention the MANY other people up the chain! Yikes! Over to you, Phil:
“I get a lot of questions about the UK TV industry, and how it all works … So, after a few of those arriving all in one day, I sat back, just mostly for my own amusement, to draw up a structure of the script commissioning process.
I found it SO interesting (and, if I’m honest, slightly alarming!) to see how just many connections have to be made for a script to get from a writer’s desk to the screen, that I ended up commissioning an infographic to get the info out more widely.
I do hope your Bang2writers find it useful – I think the main thing is it shows just how important it is to for writers to get out there to know people.
Bang2writers may also be interested in the fact I’ve just launched a new industry newsletter to help with this. We’re calling it Open Door, and the goal is to help people by giving them the information they need to make vital industry connections. With this kind of information they can really plan their writing careers in the most effective way. Find out all the info about Open Door, HERE“.
We also have good cast and crew and up on IMDb but no finance or financial plan. I’m only a writer, so not a bad start…
