SPEED DATING FEEDBACK
we got notes on how we did during our speed dating meetings with executives from last week. karen and julie ann said our year overall was one of the highest scoring groups.
some of the things the execs looked at:
flow of conversation
how well we listened
did we ask questions
how well we handled questions they asked of us
for me, i got good notes overall. what did they say? articulate, smart, nice things like that. some minor things were that my eye contact could be better. a couple people said i seemed a little nervous at first, but got better later. one person said i need to speak up, i have low volume. not too bad, considering. and those things are all easily fixable. I SAID THEY’RE ALL EASILY FIXABLE.
we got notes on our pilots. a few things for me:
i need to set up the series better at the end of the script.
the accomplishment of the main character’s goal should affect more than just him. it should affect the whole group of characters.
i need a stronger act 2 out.
thursday was a mellow class. we just watched some pilots, some that were picked up, some that were not.
this was our last class before a big break for the holidays!
