Holding a table read

Holding a table read: Creating a Short Film: 04 Working with Actors

Often in pre-production, film productions will hold a table read, which is an event in which actors will gather around a table and read the entire screenplay aloud together. This is a great opportunity for writers to hear their dialog read out loud by actors, a great chance to see acting chemistry between actors, and for productions to get a better feel for their film before production.
