Screenwriters constantly have to do deal with feedback and notes. They should always be listened to and considered. But then there’s THOSE reads. Those reads that say “this script is horrible” or “you can’t write.” Festivals and coverage services can be great sources for criticism but you run the risk of sometimes getting that kind of reaction.
Joining me to talk about how to handle that is Jennifer Sharp. Director of the feature film “I’m Through With White Girls” and an award-winning screenwriter as well, Jennifer shares some of the soul-crushing reads she’s received. But she also talks about how that doesn’t have to be the end. This a great conversation about having the resiliency to block out those who hate your work and finding the people who will love it. Enjoy:
-How do you deal with rejection?
-Can on prepare for the “no”?
-How to answer notes that change the fundamentals of the story?
-The shattering of the vision - what if the reader is right?
-Which notes to take, which ones to throw out.
-Getting feedback from those who KNOW how to read a script/treatment.
-Should you get notes/reads from people who like your stuff or people who are impartial or like other genres?
