The Watermark Collective provides a table-reading service to script-writers for screen, theatre and radio. Hearing a script aloud whether it be a play, film, television programme, radio show or web-series is an essential part of the development process. You may also use our sessions to provide a professional platform for you to invite agents or producers to listen to your work either with a view to seeking finance or as part of pre-production.
We also offer a wealth of other services such as initial script development, character and narrative exploration using improvisation, discussion and scene filming.
The Watermark Collective are a group of trained and established actors whose credits include work with the BBC, Warner Brothers, The National Theatre and the Royal Court, many with writing and producing experience.
Table Reading - £150
A private table reading with a small number of invited guests. A post-performance discussion and feedback (optional). Suitable either for scripts in the early stages of development or scripts which are ready for production with a small audience of industry professionals invited.
Improvisation - £150
Only available as an additional option after a basic table reading. A guest director will lead the actors in improvisation to help develop scenes. Suitable for scripts in early stages of development where characterisation and dialogue need more development.
