Step #2: after payment has been made and checkout complete, email victoria @ industrialscripts.co.uk with a) your 1 page CV and b) a 200 word (max) personal statement detailing your career progress to date, and your aims and goals. Include the word OVERDRIVE APPLICATION in caps in the subject line.

Why can’t I pay monthly?

Due to the digital (and non-returnable) nature of many of the benefits, members subscribe for a 1-year minimum term, via a single up-front payment. This policy reflects the fact that OVERDRIVE is aimed at only the most committed script developers, who are in the business for the long haul. We’re not looking to recruit fly-by-nighters. In addition, the volume of administration involved with a monthly payment subscription means that most membership sites now adopt an annual fee model.

Can I change my membership tier during my membership period?

Sure, you can upgrade from Bronze to Silver to Gold at any time. Just email assistant @ industrialscripts.co .uk and we’ll set it up for you.

Can I cancel my membership within the period I’ve signed up for?

You can cancel at any time, but due to the digital (non-returnable) nature of some of the content, no refunds are possible.

  1. I really like the idea of Overdrive – having been a member of various ‘free for all’ writer’s websites – but having to pay 13 months in advance…?! The writer is taking the risk here. Why not a 6 month option?

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Really talented writers, producers and directors are joining the OVERDRIVE community, taking advantage of the benefits on offer and building an active network to help support and motivate each other. If you would like to join them and crank your filmmaking career up a gear, send us your application.
