Find out what really happens to a book as it goes through the process of being adapted into a TV series.
The workshop involves a professional TV Writer’s Room development process, giving participants a unique behind-the-scenes chance to observe the adaptation of Tristan Bancks’ acclaimed novel The Fall by Matchbox Pictures Development Producer Tim Hobart and two of Australia’s most respected screenwriters.
In the workshop, the creative team will break down the novel to identify the story engine for the TV series, establish the key characters and plot the story arc.
The audience may contribute by working out solutions to plotting problems and presenting their ideas to the creative team.
The workshop will be facilitated by author and screenwriter Jesse Blackadder who will explain the process, question the creative team, and invite the audience to participate.
This event is sponsored by Screenworks, a Northern Rivers based organisation that provides support, leadership and vision for the regional screen industry across Australia.
The creative team includes:
