  • Australian Writers Guild National Screenwriters Conference

    Hey Aussie/Kiwi screenwriting friends...

    Any of you planning to head to the conference in Phillip Island in Feb? The early bird deadline is end of Dec. and I'm still debating whether I should go. It's a lot of money but as networking is easily my weakest point, I'm thinking I should force myself to go.

    Anyone else? Would be nice to have a DD cohort to hang with.

    I'll probably email the locals I know, but for those I don't know outside the boards... What do you think?

    Anyone been before? Was it worth it? (It's a stiff price, any way you slice it.)

    Thoughts, suggestions, ideas?

    I won't be attending but I might go next year. I don't like attending these things until I feel like I have some worthwhile projects I can discuss with people, as there's nothing worse than a bunch of writers talking sh*t.

    Have fun

        It won't be on next year - it'll be the year after. It's only every two years.

        Yeah, I like to have something to go with, and maybe I do, or maybe I'll take something new.

        I'll decide by Dec. 31 because I definitely want to get the Early Bird price if possible. If I don't, I won't go.

        Steve, let me know when you decide - we can catch up finally.

                I just tried to check out more information about it - how much does it cost?

                It seems that there is a 10 screen registration system - and I suspect they'll only tell me the price on screen #9 - when I've filled out the rest of the form !

                Or am I missing the info somewhere ?
