A special Skype call episode where we talk to the co-founders of the Great American Pitch Fest (who are also writers themselves) Signe Olynyk and Bob Schultz.
They're in the UK promoting their new feature, Below Zero and also talking about a pitchfest spin off being held at the London Screenwriters Festival. But we wanted to ask them about a controversial issue.
Is it right for writers to charge other writers for events? Why do they cost so much? Could they be cheaper? A big concern for writers is; are they being ripped off? Are they being exploited? As people on both sides of the equation we were all in a good position to really explore this thorny and hidden issue.
