We're back in the Writers' Room for the Breakdown Webcast: The First 10 Pages!

That is why we will be breaking down some of the most memorable scenes and sequences found with the first 10 pages of our favorite film and TV series. We will also explore 7 types of openings and how they can launch your narrative - without falling into the trap of being cliche or derivative.
