Monthly Happy Hour
Wednesday, Oct 6th - 7pm - 10pm
(note change to second Wednesday)
Join us the first Wednesday of every month for a fun evening of socializing with other Berlin screenwriters. No agenda. Just drinks and good conversation. It's an informal event so just show up and meet some great people!
Our Happy Hour is the first Wednesday of every month at The Castle in Mitte starting at 7pm and going until ???
Depending on weather, we will have space in the beer garden or in the back room. Hygiene rules apply. Proof of negative test result or proof of vaccination will be needed for indoors. Everyone will need to register when entering and a mask is a must when ordering or standing. Masks can be removed once seated at a table (when inside).
See you there!
The Pitching Round is Back!
Sunday, Sept 26th at 2PM
It's time once again to pitch your projects and ideas!
Here's your opportunity to pitch your Film/TV project and get some valuable feedback from your peers! This is a safe space to test out and improve your ideas and pitching skills.
We will schedule pitches on a first come, first served basis. If you would like to pitch, put your name in a comment below.
Please prepare your pitches to go no longer than 3-5 minutes. This will be followed up by Q&A from the other members in the group.
Here are some best practices for pitching:
1. Be confident and excited about your project. If you can't get excited, no one else will.
2. Be concise but include the genre, main character's dilemma and arc, the story's hook.
3. Stick to what's important--major story beats. Secondary characters, B stories and dialogue, for example, are not necessary.
4. Tell why this story resonates with you. Why is it important for you to tell this story. Also, why is it relevant today? These are questions you'll be asked in a real pitch, so it's good to be prepared for this.
Next month we'll have the Feedback Round. Those who pitch in this event will get first priority next month to receive feedback on script pages or treatment.
We will be located in the back room (now with a pool table!). Proof of vaccine or negative test will be required. Everyone will need to register when entering and a mask is a must when ordering or standing, so please allow for extra time and arrive a bit early. Masks can be removed once at the table.
To keep a better idea of how many people will be there, please update your RSVP if you register and then cannot make it.
How to find us: We'll be in the room in the back of the bar. It's a sizable room and we can open the doors so there is plenty of fresh air circulating for anyone concerned about being with a group indoors.
