Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

16 Nov 2019

Go from concept to pitch in just one day!

This workshop will explore two of the fundamental aspects of creating a television or web series – world and character. Aimed at emerging and practising screenwriters who want to advance their skills in developing concepts and deepening their understanding of script development, it will delve into the relationship between world and character, and how this informs themes and storylines. In teams, participants will develop and pitch a series idea, and have strong ideas about how they would then go on to storyline and write the series.

This workshop is brought to Cairns by Queensland Writers Centre in partnership with Central Queensland University and Cairns Tropical Writers.

Learning Outcomes:

You will improve your series development skills through guided exercises and group discussions with the following key focus areas:
– Learn about the importance of world in a television or web series
– Create a compelling precinct for your drama to unfold
– Understand how character arcs relate to world and theme
– Develop a cast of characters and potential storylines
– Pitch a series concept as part of a creative team
