Specific areas to be explored are the creation of a dramatic world, the 'what if' conceptual question, development and creation of a dynamic protagonist, the use of secondary characters, primary and secondary storylines and assembling a series concept document.
Participants should begin the course with the germ of an idea for a TV drama or comedy concept in mind. This should not be an idea that has already been fully developed as a concept. The intention of this course is to guide participants through the process of concept creation from idea inception to concept presentation.
There is an online tutorial session every Tuesday evening 7 - 9 pm from 14th July to 15th September.
