Let's talk about Twitter Bios for writers/screenwriters/creators. Two groups of awesome individuals jumped on video chats this week to workshop their bios, and here's the collective knowledge. (1/?)
Right now, our bios are basically our introductions. With everything going virtual, this is how we're meeting people. They need to be professional and specific.

Other ways to think about them are as a virtual business card or a logline for who you are and what you do. (2/?)
Your photo is important. We want to be able to recognize you when we're all able to be in the same room again. (And take advantage of your banner space, too. Don't let it just be a grey box.)

As a #Screenwriter #pathinettampadi has lots to teach. The thread talks about the don't taught by the film

1. Do not make the story too complicated by introducing too many characters in the beginning
2. Do not leave the audience confused as to wondering who's against whom
3. Do not have half developed characters in the script that go nowhere
4. Do not show unrealistic but well choreographed between village students.
5. Do not show unrealistic things happening like arson, rampage etc. and police is not doing anything

6. Do not put big stars in small meaningless cameos just to attract people to the theaters
7. Do not waste time in showing story plots which remain unfinished, do not go anywhere before you come to real message (if any) in the movie, give in bits

Writing Myths #3 Writing Portfolios are the magic way into the industry!!
Get a portfolio said the writing panel/advice/speaker in what is the latest throwaway simple advice that instantly builds a career…. So, let’s talk about them.
1/24
1)Portfolios are NOT magic. Simply having one doesn't get you a job. Tey are a tool to be used in chasing work and an increasing number of employers ask for them. Having one can be very useful, but just putting some bits of writing in the same place does not = instant career.
2) People tend to read your email first, then your c.v. and then portfolio. Mess up stages 1, or 2 and 3 may well not matter. Always rework your email, c.v. and portfolio for EVERY application. Focus on what matches that job/company.
