Matt and Scott have embarked on their 10-month journey through the National Screen Institute’sÂ Features First program on the road to producingÂ Synapse. Their first phase was an intensive week-long session in Toronto, where they were deep into story editing and discussions with agents, distributors, executive producers and more! Phase 2 was another week in Toronto for Matt, and a mindblowing script consulting session for Scott.
Now, they’re off to Toronto to pitch their feature at TIFF.
They continue to blog and share their stories through the process. If you’d like to follow along and learn as they do, bookmark this post and they’ll update it throughout the program.
