Sales End January 30, 2018
It's the 1st LiveRead/LA of 2018 on Monday, January 29th. Our Industry Insider is Alex Walton - President of Bloom Media - an Indie Finance, Production and International Sales Company whose credits include 'The Nice Guys' (Ryan Gosling/Russell Crowe) , George Clooney's 'Suburbicon' and 'Hostiles' (Christian Bale). Alex has a long history in the Independent film world, and will bring fascinating insights into the funding, production and sales of Independent feature films.
Two winning scripts from our screenwriting contest will read live by talented actors, followed by notes/feedback from Alex, our Director Tim Schildberger, and the audience. All are welcome to the event, and don't forget we encourage audience feedback. Following the reading is our Q&A with Alex, where you're welcome to ask any/ all questions!
" THIS IS A BRILLIANT IDEA. It’s very needed and everyone involved is benefitting.... having an industry guest is everything. Also, live-streaming is cool for people like me (Midwesterner) who can never truly convince my parents that writing is a 'job'" - Flannery M.
" Wanted to drop a line and say how much I enjoyed the evening... It's that great combo of entertaining/informational/social. I was really impressed by the notes offered up as well. I'll be back - both in person and with submissions." - Paul L.
" Writers gathering to help, inspire, suffer, and bleed with other writers... thoroughly enjoyable time!" - Steven M.
" Aside from the great pleasure of hearing my script read aloud the feedback from the Insider, Tim, and the audience was insightful and made me excited for another pass at the script. I would highly recommend this monthly festival not only for submissions but also for attendees, all aspects of LiveRead/LA are beneficial for growing in writing regardless of if your script is selected!" - Jenna W.
