Developer POD


DEVELOPER POD

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Screen Canberra is incredibly excited to announce the Developer TV POD program for 2019/2020.

This 12-month training program teaches aspiring screen story developers the principles and practice of development assistance in the hands-on environment of the Accelerator TV POD.  With a view to facilitating high-level, yet personalised feedback to all of the participants of the Accelerator TV POD, Screen Canberra identified the need for skilled, home-grown story developers.

A small group of writers and film creatives will be trained in providing professional development assistance with a dual focus:

  • to effectively respond to the market’s need for commercially viable projects
  • to respect the writers’ personal background and creative intentions.

ELIGIBILITY

  • Must be an Australian Resident
  • Must be available for a 3-day intensive in Canberra, ACT (or surrounds)
    • Meals and Accommodation will be provided by Screen Canberra during this 3-day intensive.
  • Must be available for all scheduled weekend workshops
  • You can apply if you participated in Developer FILM POD

SELECTION CRITERIA

  • An interest in Screenwriting and Script Development
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal

Developer TV POD Participants are ineligible to pitch their projects.  To fully benefit out of the Developer POD Program your focus will be on your team and assisting them throughout the process.  The Developer POD Program is designed to build and develop your skills to practice as a Script Developer – you will be guided and supported every step of the way by the Screen Canberra Team and facilitator, Karel Segers.
