Yesterday, Thursday 30th January 2020, Industrial Scripts celebrated its 10 Year Anniversary with an industry reception sponsored by STOLI.
Agents, producers, writers, directors and IS staff gathered at the Sanctum Hotel Variety Screening Lounge for canapés and vodka cocktails.

The company delivered its first product, course or service on Saturday 30th January 2010 with the introduction of “Effective Script Reading” – a 1-day masterclass which continues to run regularly today.
Script coverage and doctoring services (as reported in Screen) followed later and the rest, as they say, is history.
Industrial Scripts GM Victoria Carrington commented:
As anyone reading this knows, film and TV are fragile, precarious industries: and that’s putting it…mildy! Barely a month goes by without the splashy trade announcement of some new company, or fund, or deal…but so many of these disappear without trace. So on behalf of the whole team I want to thank our loyal clients first and foremost. Without your commitment to the written (and filmed) word, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do. And for such a long period.
There was definitely a time where we were too active in too many areas, and looking back that period was maybe a necessary part of the company’s growing pains. As time’s gone by we’ve decided to focus and concentrate our efforts on doing less, better and I think this is paying real dividends now. I feel incredibly optimistic that the company will continue to push on and thrive and grow.
Will Industrial Scripts exist in 2050?
You wouldn’t bet against it…
Our sincere thanks again to STOLI for their support in producing the IS 10 Year Anniversary.
