A fellow writer asked me about Adrian Mead's Power Of Three system, so I assume other people might be interested. There's also a matter in which I'm unclear. So here we go...
In Adrian's excellent London day-class, a couple of months back, he gave us a template for progressing and polishing your script using other people's critiques. The Power Of Three system involves giving the first draft (or whenever you're ready to show it, in my own view) to three readers, who give feedback. You act on it - especially on points over which there is a consensus - then give the second draft to three more readers. Then the third draft goes to yet more readers. Bingo! It shines like a new fifty pence piece.
A fellow writer asked me how much notes/coverage these Power Of Three readers give, and I didn't have an answer. In the first round which I just did, the notes/coverage varied considerably. All were extremely useful, I'm pleased to say, but the actual volume and detail really differed from person to person. So I'm tempted to say it's really a matter of (a) how much time people are willing or able to spend; and/or perhaps (b) how much time they are inspired to spend on writing notes.
I hunger for views on this. Feed my face.
