We are hosting 2 training classes with veteran Script Coordinator Debbie Ezer on Sunday, November 10th & 17th.

Enrollment for these classes are now available. Check out the course descriptions to see what to expect.

Script Coordinator Part I

 This course provides an overview of a Script Coordinator’s responsibilities from preparation for Day One to Wrap, including best practices for all proofing and formatting tasks, administrative responsibilities, the clearance process, and the flow of information. The Beginner Class features detailed instruction taking you step-by-step through the primary tasks of a Script Coordinator, and will dig in with great detail into how to go through a draft, etc., as well as help form the basis of checklists the beginner should always be using.

Prerequisites: None.

Supply List: Your preferred note taking materials, and it is highly recommended that you bring your own laptop with Final Draft installed. (If there is sufficient demand/interest, Movie Magic Screenwriter will also be covered.) There will be handouts and digital files distributed during class as well. (Don’t forget to bring your power cord!)

Script Coordinator Part II

The Script Coordinator Advanced Class will cover the primary topics of being a Script Coordinator in a more general way, assuming base knowledge, so that we can dig into the details of the rest of the topics, in particular the Clearance process and the minutiae of WGA and Business Affairs paperwork. The core of the Advanced Class dives into instruction on the more high-level functions of Final Draft (which students will then practice on their own computers), as well as offering tips & tricks and a section on problem solving strategies for more advanced issues.
Prerequisites: Either the Script Coordinator Beginner Class or some experience working as a Script Coordinator on a TV show.
Supply List: Your preferred note taking materials, and you must bring your own laptop w with Final Draft installed to participate in this Advanced Class. (If there is sufficient demand/interest, Movie Magic Screenwriter will also be covered.). There will be digital files distributed during class as well. (Don’t forget to bring your power cord!)

Script Coordinator Combo Part I & II

Any chance these classes might be made available online for remote attendees over Zoom or something?

Hello Brenda. Not this time around. I will look into this option when we do it in the spring.

Hi,

Do these courses do anything in regards to helping students find work, or land interviews? I think the knowledge and skills learned in these courses is incredibly valuable but I’m wondering what students who go through the program are offered upon completion.

Hello Blake. We don’t have any job placement or referrals. Once you finish this course you have the upper hand to say you received the same training that Script Coordinators have access to through the Union. Debbie teaches this same course to people in the Union.
