About the Event
Doing a script breakdown is an essential part of pre-production when making a film. It allows you to list out every single element that is needed to make your film and really assess what you will keep and what you may need to cut or change in order to keep your film within budget and on schedule.
Various departments in film production do script breakdowns are part of their pre-production process. For the purposes of this class, Landi is going to show you how to do a script breakdown as a director and/or 1st AD to ensure you can clearly relay your vision to the other film departments when making your movie.
