Writing for Television and Web-Series
Please note - there are only 2 spots left!
This nine-session workshop will offer comprehensive insight and tips on writing drama for mini-series, web series, and long-form television.
The first four sessions will delve into character, premise, and developing series outlines. This will be followed by a three-week break where workshop participants will work on their pilot scripts. In the following five sessions, each participant will have their pilot script workshopped by the group.
Workshop Facilitator Rene Le Bas is a winner and three-time finalist for Best Unproduced TV Pilot at the SWANZ awards. He is a Seed Grant recipient, and has worked in writer’s rooms for Casey Zilbert and Steve Barr, as well as series three of TV2’s The Cul de Sac. Rene has led several EAT Writers groups.
