Event description

Description

American and British TV Series. What's it like to work on both?

Join the independent filmmakers network Shooting People for a discussion with director/writer S.J. Clarkson (Orange is the New Black, The Defenders, Dexter, House, Bates Motel) and director/writer Charles Sturridge (Strike (J.K. Rowling), Brideshead Revisited, Da Vinci’s Demons).

We’ll be talking with them about their work across television series and feature filmmaking, about the difference between working in the UK vs USA TV industries, as well as seeking their advice on breaking into the TV business as a writer/director, and how to navigate this complex and rewarding territory once inside.
