Too many series get made without valuable expert advice that can turn a good script into a great script. Hosted by Festival Partners DCUK, an informal group of Web Series and online video creators and producers, this event provides real-life examples and insight for how to improve your short form script before you even enter production.

In the Writers Room, actors perform scripts submitted by local creators in a live table read in front of a panel of screenwriting experts, who then present feedback along with comments and questions from the live event audience. Our panel of experts for this edition of Writers Room features Andrew Burrell (Lead Writer on CBBC’s Dangermouse & Writer for Matt Groening’s Disenchantment) and Dana Bruce (Producer (from Northern Order Films) for Warp Films, BFI, Creative England & Tigerlily).
