NAIL YOUR FILM / TV / ONLINE / PODCAST IDEA

VIDEO WORKSHOP - take part wherever in the world you are.


Do you have a film, TV or Online idea that you dream of getting off the ground? Need support from those in the industry?

Workshop leader Julia Berg has worked for Producers of "ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND", "YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE" and "AMERICAN HONEY"

Recent participants have secured finance from the BFI, Creative England and connected with leading producers worldwide, including Audible and Vice. In any one month, we work with up to 40 storytellers. Imagine your dream also coming true.

Run by Development Producer Julia Berg (Maven Pics, Likely Story, JW Films) and Ruth Spencer (of London Real Online/Podcast development) successes and strategies will be shared that have attracted BAFTA winning producers, broadcasters and Academy nominated screenwriters and Emmy winning directors.

Over 2 sessions these story development workshops will be tailored to your individual needs across both scripted and unscripted content, in all formats (film, TV, podcast/online).

In a group setting, this is collaborative - an exchange of groundbreaking ideas that will also strengthen your networks.

You will leave with a sense of traction, whatever stage your project is in.

Success stories are many; participants who had dreamt of receiving funding for their first ever short film go ahead and secure it from the BFI; a filmmaker received finance for their first ever feature straight out of University and a theatre producer who had dreamt of moving into TV, after sessions with us, gets her series idea picked up by a well known streamer and packaged with a top writer and producer. These are just some of the successes to date!
