Fresh Voice: In Conversation With… October 2013
sponsored by ITV
As a recent BAFTA report stated, the opportunity to meet those already in the industry is a hugely important factor in a TV career. Other challenges BAME writers face is seeing how their script fits into the collaborative process of making television drama.
In Conversation With… is a series of conversations between a group of 15 writers and seasoned professionals. The series aims to give the writers the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the programme making process from the development of the original idea, through the production process by way of facilitated meetings with seasoned professionals from various disciplines. In this way the writers gain an understanding of the business behind their art. Each event in the series looks at one aspect of the programme making process starting with a writer, followed by events with a producer, a development producer, director, actor, line producer and commissioner.
The first event was held at ITV Southbank and our first guest was Andy Harries, Chief Executive, Left Bank Pictures.
