This is a great course for writers/actors/and directors to sit around the same writing table during the 5 week course which has 3 hour sessions on Monday nights. The collective group will be called Showrunners and they will be orchestrated to create one joint project from Concept to Pitch. The sessions will cover group dynamics of character pairings, storylines which focus on different A & B plotting and the group will focus their creative writing strengths on different arcs of the overall story and theme.
Our five week online Character/Writing Workshop in August is considered a good taster session for this course which takes the next step from creating characters to developing plotlines and webseries. We encourage actors to join in with potential Directors as well as the writers so that you have the three key personnel in formulating series content for online streaming shows.
Using technology, the students can join in on zoom where they can interact thru livestream version of the course or access the videos and accept assignment tasks to feel a part of the writer’s room and concept.
Within the five sessions, we plan to dive deeper into the development of a writer room to create a particular programme after discussing the breakdown of various concepts and characters. The online streaming course will advance to creating a particular show from concept to pitch. This is about how collaboration between writers and actors better produce a programme when there is a central showrunner to oversee the structure built by core teams. Here, people will work together on creating plotlines, story arcs and character interactions and pose challenges to the fellow teams as they construct pieces of the puzzle and learn the power of teamwork in story development and series planning.
The series created for the final pitch needs each members contribution to the whole of the series. The 3 hour monday night sessions will begin September 7th and run to October 5th for the final Pitch Night.
We will be offering this workshop in our Liverpool base for face to face members but we are also presenting the opportunity to engage people outside of our city as well as internationally through zoom.
