19 Sept – Shorts Night marks ScriptTank’s return

After an (enforced) break during 2017, ScriptTank is returning in a few weeks’ time, with a Shorts Night.

If you have a script or another short piece (such as a treatment), you would like performed, please email Katharine Way.

Full and new members of ScriptTank can ask for a slot on Shorts Night. Pieces must be no longer than 15 minutes (15 pages maximum for scripts) and scripts can be complete works or extracts from longer pieces.

When you email Katharine, please let her know how many actors the script requires, and of what gender.

If you’re not a member yet, and you are interested in joining ScriptTank, please contact us.

ScriptTank script call

We are planning five more meetings this term on the following dates:

  • 3, 17 and 31 October
  • 21 November
  • 5 December

Any existing member of ScriptTank may ask for a slot on these nights. If you would like one, please email Katharine.

New members must attend at least three meetings before your script can be read on one of these nights. Coming to the Shorts Night will count as your first meeting.

Please note meetings are closed to non-members. If you’d like to bring a guest, please email Katharine first.

23 Jan – Shorts Night opens ScriptTank’s 2017

 

As is traditional on ScriptTank’s return from a hiatus, this month our first meeting will be a Shorts Night.

On 23 January, we’ll be hearing short scripts from a selection of writers. In previous nights scripts for short films and web serials, extracts from works-in-progress, as well as pitches and treatments of new projects, have all been heard.

If you are new ScriptTank member and haven’t had a chance to come to ScriptTank, this is a chance to see what it’s like first-hand.

If you are a new member interested in submitting a script for the Shorts Night, please email Katharine Way. Each work must take no longer than 15 minutes to read (a maximum of 15 pages, using standard screenplay format).

When and where

We will be meeting at The Wheatsheaf pub (25 Rathbone Place, London, W1T 1DG),  on Monday, 23 January, at 6.45pm for a 7pm start for the Shorts Night.

If you are interested in joining ScriptTank, please contact us.
