We Make Movies

The DIY Film Collective That's Got Your Back

Writers Workshop

WHEN: Every other Wednesday night. Check the calendar for the next writers workshop!

WHERE: Sacred Fools Company Theatre (formerly The Asylum Theatre) – 1076 Lillian Way, Los Angeles, CA 90038

WHAT: Writers Workshops are focused on providing a venue for fresh pages to be read by professional actors β€” with the aim of encouraging the writers and exploring the material as a precursor to pre-production, whether it be for a short film, a spec pilot, or a feature film. It’s also a place for writers, actors, directors, etc. to get together and maybe meet a few people worth working with. Not only that, but we serve free wine and snacks to all. We are always looking for new writers and actors and this workshop is free and open to the public.

HOW: We do a staged reading of 4-6 original script submissions (15 pages or less per submission to keep the night varied) at each Writers Workshop. The pieces can be shorts, or excerpts from larger works. Each script is cast ahead of time by WMM (casting suggestions from the writers are taken into consideration, but cannot be guaranteed) from our large community of professional actors. The audience then provides feedback to the writer after each piece is read.

ACTORS: To be a reader, please fill out our submission form by the WEDNESDAY before the workshop.

WRITERS: Please fill out our submission form to enter your scripts. We also accept shorter scripts (up to seven pages) which are $5 per submission (as opposed to the regular $10). *Scripts are now required to be accompanied with the breakdown for casting. 

Bonus: Free wine and snacks!
