One of the amazing items up for bid in the 3rd TV, eh? Charity Auction for Kids Help Phone is courtesy Denis McGrath for all you writers out there — professional notes on one of your scripts. As Denis says:
Professionals will tell you that writing is rewriting. And successful pilot scripts that get noticed get that way thanks to multiple rounds of feedback and dramaturgy by smart, professional readers. You’re bidding on a chance to to have a script (one half-hour or one one-hour) read and professionally noted by a senior, award-winning television writer, whose credits include X Company, The Border, Less Than Kind, Continuum, Bitten, and Stargate: Universe. Your written notes will include analysis of structure, character, plot & story progression, originality, clarity and thoughts on saleability potential. Your reader has been an Executive Producer in Residence at the Canadian Film Centre, and taught writing at Ryerson University for more than 10 years.
Availability: November 2015, script to be delivered in PDF form. Notes will be delivered in writing, with an option for in-script feedback, depending on program used.
