How to develop an idea into a TV series project? What are the necessary steps in order to make your project ready for producers, distributors, financiers, streaming platforms and TV channels? How to pitch a TV series?

This intensive storytelling workshop is aimed at screenwriters and producers at all stages of their careers, introducing the main components of series development from the inception of an idea to the pitching stage. Concepts such as tagline, logline, story structure, character creation and world building are introduced and debated, and students end the course with a firm grasp on the necessary materials needed to pitch and present their projects.

For the last day of the workshop, participants will be asked to prepare a 10-minute pitch of a series project and present it in front of the class. Each of the student’s ideas will be debated taking into account their dramatic and commercial possibilities.

The course tutors are Lucas Abrahão (a Brazilian screenwriter and screenwriting tutor) and Jotagá Crema (a Brazilian director and screenwriter). Find the tutors’ profiles here.

Töötoa pealkiri eesti keeles: Telesarja arendamine ja esitlemine

Töötuba toimub inglise keeles. Eestikeelne kokkuvõte:

Kuidas arendada algsest ideest telesari? Millised sammud tuleb läbida, et projekt oleks sellises vormis, et jagada seda produtsentide, levitajate, rahastajate, voogedastusplatvormide ja telekanalitega? Kuidas telesarja esitleda ja mis on pitching?

Kolmepäevane intensiivne loojutustamise töötuba on mõeldud stsenaristidele ja produtsentidele, nii algajatele kui kogenud professionaalidele. Töötoas käsitletakse telesarja arendamise etappe alates idee sünnist kuni esitlusfaasini. Teemade seas on tunnuslause (tagline), juhtlause (logline), loo struktuur, tegelaste arendamine ja maailmate ehitamine. Osalejad saavad arusaama, milliseid materjale, millisel kujul ja mis formaadis on tarvis oma sarja esitlemiseks.

Viimasel töötoa päeval esitab iga osaleja juhendajatele ja grupile 10-minutilise esitluse (pitch’i) oma sarjaprojektist. Iga osaleja saab tagasisidet, sh analüüsi oma projekti sisulistest ja rahastuslikest väljavaadetest.

Kursust juhendavad Brasiilia päritolu stsenarist Lucas Abrahão ja stsenarist ning rezissöör Jotagá Crema.
