I just wanted to air my thoughts and thought processes at the moment as I need to get it off my chest.
The two mediums I enjoy writing for are theatre and film, my background is primarily in theatre and have only written one film, but I am very confident in the film script I have. I have written a few plays but none of them are polished as of yet and for some reason I can’t bring myself to edit and redraft them.
I’m struggling at the moment to resolved the Theatre Vs. Film debate. Which path do I go down? Do I have to choose at all? Can I do both? Which one do I prioritise?
Do I look for an agent for my film script or do I try my luck entering competitions with the film script? Equally, do I focus on editing and redrafting my plays and sending those off for competitions/to agents?
I think the thing I’m worried about is that if I pick one path to go down it will cut me off from the other one. I think deep down I prefer theatre and know more about theatre, but the script isn’t where I want it to be. Film is exciting and new, and I know the script is good. But where do I go from here?
If any of you guys can offer any advice please do!
