Everything about script

For the first time ever in Greece, renowned directors/scriptwriters Sotiris Goritsas and Alexis Kardaras, and writer/scriptwriter Nikos Panayotopoulos, all experts in script supervising, have launched a web-based script supervising tool helping turning an idea into a script and giving tips for making it better.

The programme aims to provide assistance to professional scriptwriters, to those writing for the first time or to those with the need for a "second opinion" for their script or a story. Goritsas, Darvaras and Panayotopoulos will read the submitted scripts and send their comments and suggestions to the submitter shortly after. As they admit, the idea is not to make the scriptwriting, instead, they will highlight what΄s good and point out the weak parts, assisting each submitter writing his/her own script.

There will also be given filmmaking tips and possible ways to produce the script, as well as a syntax and grammar check along with translation of the script in the major European languages. They don’t address only to filmmakers but also include those with an idea for a short/feature film or TV-series.

Everything about script introduces six modules of help:

1. From concept to first draft 
For authors who, having already a concept for a film or TV-series, lack the knowledge to complete a first draft.

In Stage 1, the submitter will be assisted turning his/her idea into a Story up to 2 pages, in no more than 2 sessions. The cost will be €150. 
Stage 2 will be completed with the writing of a maximum 15 pages draft, in no more than 3 sessions, costing €250. 
In Stage 3, the draft will be turned into the final script in 4 sessions with a cost of €500.
