THE WRITING ROOM EXPERIENCE
Are you interested in writing TV comedy? Wondering what your next step should be? In this course we'll create a half-hour comedy show together over 4 weeks, from premise to Pilot. Each student will write a few scenes for our final Pilot episode. In addition, I'll share valuable information about breaking into writing for Canadian TV, how the Canadian TV industry works (Canadian content, business model/funding structure, dealing with producers, broadcasters & agents, the Writers Guild of Canada) -- and more, including free laughter and advice on your ideas and projects.
The Writing Room Experience will hone your skills as a comedy screenwriter, expand your understanding of the collaborative creative process, and give you valuable information and advice about the Canadian TV industry. It's also really fun.
