Feedback form is now closed.
Character development and dialogue can only take you so far. It’s action that drives your story forward, and as the most visual component of any screenplay, it can be a daunting task to put it into words. Panelists will discuss writing action and description for a script and give their advice for writing scenes that translate seamlessly from script to screen.

Must have an AFF Producers, Conference, Weekend, or Lone Star Badge for entry.
