Bahama Films founder Wiktor Piatkowski will conduct 7th edition of Racconti workshops organized by IDM Script Lab.
Racconti IDM Scipt Lab will again explore new approaches to storytelling for television. Under the motto SPLIT SCREEN writers can choose to apply either as staff writers to develop a TV series concept in a Writers’ Room under the guidance of a head writer OR as creators who will develop their own ideas for a digital series in the digital think tank.
In the digital think tank up to seven writers/directors will have the opportunity to develop their own ideas for a digital series and to collaborate with each other on group projects in a writers’ room approach. The process will be guided by a team of 3 international mentors who bring their own hands on experience in the digital arena to the process. One of them will be Polish producer and writer Wiktor Piatkowski (Bahama Films founder, Just Push Abuba – ZDF sitcom and The Pack – first Polish HBO production creator).
At the end of the workshop, the partnering production companies Bahama Films, Black Sheep Films and Endemol Shine Beyond will get a time-limited first look right on all projects. After the workshop, all writers get the opportunity to present their projects to producers, VOD platforms or broadcasters.
Both sections of the program take place simultaneously and consist of two one-week workshops in South Tyrol and a writing phase in between and after. Session 1 takes place from October 1-6, session 2 from November 19-24, 2018.
