I've loved being part of OVERDRIVE. Being able to make the most of the discounts, and free entry to The Insider Interviews LIVE every month, has been great. Writing can be a lonely process, so it's nice to talk to other members, network and go on the journey together.
As a director with three feature credits under my belt, I'm always on the lookout for new and exciting screenwriting voices and projects. I decided to join OVERDRIVE on the back of a brilliant script report I received from Industrial Scripts (I've booked many more, subsequently), and the chance to scout new talent. To be frank, I also joined because I liked the fact that all other members are vetted because other "open door" schemes I've tried have delivered too many moaners and not enough great networking! Overall, I've been delighted with OVERDRIVE, and am now collaborating with not one but two of my fellow OD-ers on new scripts.
One of the most important parts of being an agent is being 'on it', when it comes to new writers and directors. Getting to them first is obviously really important and through OVERDRIVE I get to hear about fresh scripts and new voices that have already been vetted by Industrial Scripts.
Industrial Script’s excellent script reports can hone a screenplay but for me OVERDRIVE provides the career and professional guidance essential to lift the writer’s horizon beyond their own desk. With regular meetings to review progress, and the chance to discuss difficult decisions, the mentoring scheme is invaluable for writers battling to launch their work. The community of members offers the chance to share experiences and discoveries. Ultimately OVERDRIVE is a brilliant support platform for screenwriters.
OVERDRIVE is a great way for new writers to learn about the industry and receive advice from professional writers, directors and producers. The mentoring scheme in particular has provided me with the bespoke guidance and support I've needed at a critical stage of my career. I wholeheartedly recommend it, and encourage you to apply forthwith!
OVERDRIVE particularly suits me. I like the fact that the community began with invited members – particularly with writers whose work has been appreciated by Industrial Scripts’ readers. Our group of writers are, by and large, trying to break into the industry and have the same queries about how to do that. That gives us a lot to bond over – whether asking questions about how to approach production companies or about schemes and competitions. Reading each other’s scripts, has also been really helpful as well. Last but not least – the discounts for members, especially for writers, are very attractive. Come and help us build an even more productive community!
