Dallas Screenwriters Association – Screen Reads

April 30 @ 11:30 am - 3:30 pm

For the first time in years, DSA will be hosting a Table Read of one member’s full-length script!

After getting back the results of the survey we sent out (thank you!), the Table Reads will be Saturday, April 30th from 11:30am-3:30pm at KD Studios†† and via Zoom.

The featured script will be TONIGHT by KC Kramer and David Baird.
LOGLINE: A taxi driver makes a deal with a suicidal girl who gets in his cab: she gives him one night to prove to her that life is still worth living, which winds up taking them on a series of adventures that will ultimately change both their lives forever.

Check out each writer’s personal logline below (something that ALL writer’s should have for themselves).

KC and David are looking forward to having other writers sit in on this and are looking for honest critiques. That’s why we will carve out time for everyone to give feedback meant to build them and their script up. The duo has invited a producer who’s shown interest in this project, so let’s help them put their best foot forward!

Speaking of special guests, cinematographer/director and past DSA Table Reads director, ROGER LINDLEY, will be in attendance to give advice and direct the table read after the initial read-through. This will be a great benefit not only to KC and David but to all of us!

Which brings me to…ACTORS! If you are or know of any actors, please pass on this information to them and have them submit this Google form. A fill-in form is being prepared to facilitate matching actors to characters.  We want to have the cast set before the 30th, and it would be even better if the actors attended in-person.

Zoom Registrations are currently being accepted for those who cannot attend in-person. At KD Studios, water and snacks be provided.

We are so excited for this Table Read and want to implement going forward. To have a script hosted, you must be a DSA Member in good standing and submit a completed screenplay, teleplay, or short film script. The script doesn’t have to be totally producer-ready but should be pretty polished and have gone through at least a couple pass-throughs (revisions). So if you are not a DSA Member already,  Join Now.

See you on April 30th!
