Tune in to these WIFTI webinars for a better understanding of what Netflix is looking for. They're early, so we'll make sure you have access to any recordings.
First up on Tuesday 13 September, Chris Mack, Director of Grow Creative for Netflix International Originals, delves into what exactly makes a television pitch work at Netflix.
In this workshop tailor-made for WIFTI members, Chris will discuss the essentials you’ll need to catch Netflix’s eye and will zero in on how to write an effective pitch document. He’ll pose questions you'll be able to answer and communicate for your series and give you ideas on how best to communicate your show’s overview, world, tone, and characters.
Chris will then discuss how season summaries should be built and give you ideas on how to think about and present potential episodes. Finally, you will have the invaluable opportunity to ask him your own questions.
You will leave this presentation with the understanding of how to structure and present your series, not in theory, but directly from the source.
To get the most out of the session, please watch the first season of Stranger Things and Unorthodox, as well as the first episode of Fleabag prior to attending the workshop.
