ROBOT & MONSTER
i got to sit in on the writers’ room of robot & monster for one day as they were revising a script. the head writers weren’t there, so the room consisted of the story editor, 2 writers, a script coordinator, and me just watching. they projected the script up on the wall and went through it page by page, punching up jokes and addressing whatever notes they had received. i wish i got to stay longer than just 1 day, but they were nearly done writing for the season so it just didn’t happen. it was still pretty cool to see.
we had a meeting with karen to discuss we how we should best make use of the last few months of the fellowship. the 2 big things were 1) pilot, 2) agents. we’ve been working on pilot scripts for a couple months and it had been very self directed. i was floundering for a bit, but i made a firm decision on which concept to write, and i came up with a schedule to finish it. karen will give us notes as we move from premise to outline to first draft, which is great. she also said she would set up meetings with agents for us, which i don’t think has happened in previous years of the fellowship, so that’s very exciting.
