Here's a not-to-be-missed workshop for those interested in story development - whether you're a writer or not!
Scriptwriter Rachel Lang is one of the writers on a major production coming to Christchurch: Dark City: The Cleaner, which received funding funding from Te Puna Kairangi – Premium Productions for International Audiences Fund in May. She will join producer Nadia Maxwell (Human Traces, Reunion) in Christchurch for a discussion about story development.
Rachel has written some of New Zealand's best-known and loved television series: Outrageous Fortune, Shortland Street, The Almighty Johnsons, Nothing Trivial, Go Girls and many others.
She's a talented writer and an industry stalwart and we're over the moon to have her do a workshop with us!
The discussion will cover, among other things, the following topics:
· What a showrunner does;
· How you get to be a showrunner;
· How Covid has changed the practicalities of writing for television;
· What the ingredients for a successful writers room are;
· Tips for creating ideas and how to market them.
Bring your questions and Rachel will do her best to answer them!
