The Development Phase is where a grantee will start if he/she has submitted a script that the Foundation has elected to support. The goal of this phase: to ensure the script has a solid story and characters before the Production phase begins. The grant will mandate that the WPD go through a rigorous script review process by both MSE executives and outside organizations and or industry professionals who specialize in script and writer development. In addition, professional writers may be brought in to enhance story and character quality. Ideally all related fees for this process the grant will cover so the grantee can focus on learning from the process. Through all phases the Foundation will reach out to Network partners to encourage distribution. In addition, during this phase: location analysis and shot planning will take place.
