In a business driven by collaboration and connections, the battle isn't meeting people... it's meeting the right people.
"The problem isn't meeting collaborators...it's meeting the RIGHT collaborators..."
There are hundreds of Facebook and LinkedIn groups out there offering to connect Screenwriters, Producers and Directors. And every single one of them has an open door. Even the lion's share of paid platforms are the same - anyone can join, and you don't have to be a genius to work out what the networking is like as a result...
In OVERDRIVE, by contrast, every single member has been vetted, and the community is capped at just 500 places...
"Every single OVERDRIVE member has been screened...

I found screenwriter Tom Mann through OVERDRIVE, after I put a call out for promising genre scripts in the member forum. I was so impressed by his material that I commissioned him to produce a treatment for a project, which we're now raising development finance for. I can say with some authority that OVERDRIVE saved me considerable time, energy and a fate worse than death - either trawling all the usual channels new writers congregate in, or trying to get the attention of various less-than-energetic agents. The community is a fantastic resource.
ED BOASE // Director
OVERDRIVE gave me instant access to a driven community of talented filmmakers committed to honing their craft and furthering their careers in the industry. This quality of network is invaluable and is something I never could have acquired on my own.
GEORGIA CLEGG // Screenwriter
One of the most important parts of being an agent is being alert when it comes to new writers and directors. Getting to talent first is obviously really important and through OVERDRIVE I get to hear about fresh scripts and new voices that have already been vetted by Industrial Scripts.
NISH PANCHAL // Agent
Through an OVERDRIVE membership, writers and filmmakers receive an extensive list of tools and benefits to support them as they develop their careers. Here's why members join:
The Vetted Network. With most communities operating a total free-for-all, open-door policy, the fact that OVERDRIVE members are independently screened and approved is the primary reason filmmakers apply.
The 2-Tier Script Feedback System. With an OVERDRIVE membership, you'll access 2 tiers of screenplay support - free peer-to-peer review from other, vetted members and unlimited 25% discount off IS premium script notes.
The Insider Interviews series with major industry guests. Our OVERDRIVE members meet almost every month for masterclasses with major industry guests. This series, which normally costs £180.00, is free for members.
