Game of Thrones. True Blood. Silver. Bored to Death. Gossip Girl. What do these television shows all have in common?
They were books before they were adapted as network, cable, or premium channel shows.
Turning a book into a screenplay, or a teleplay is an art form onto itself. And turning a screenplay or teleplay into a book is one way in which you can get your project noticed by producers, as well as give it another revenue-generating platform.
Join me, along with Laurie Scheer (Media Goddess, former producer for ABC, Viacom, Showtime, and AMC) for this seminar, which outlines the necessary steps writers need to take to move their literary work onto transmedia platforms.
Laurie and I will discuss in detail our working relationship throughout the entire process–from mere idea to sold pilot–so you too can sell your prose within the vast television marketplace.
Topics covered:• Adapting literary prose into script format.• Preparing a TV bible, series treatment, project synopsis• Selling yourself as a transmedia writer• Understanding the television development process• Playing the game-knowing what to ask for when your project is picked up• Reality Check: Collaboration, or Take the Money and Run?This is an interactive BOOT CAMP workshop consisting of lecture, presentation, in-class exercises, discussion, and Q & A ending session.
I hope to see you there!
