Open Call for our member companies! FICTION: CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT

begins

Ensure your concept is truly ready before entering the scriptwriting and development stages

Want help to develop and strengthen your concept?
We are looking for drama series or fiction feature concepts to join our upcoming Concept development project. The four chosen projects will get consultation from script professional Johanna Ginstmark, who will give feedback and coaching six times during 5-6 months.

The screenwriter or screenwriter-producer team meets Johanna (online) approx. once a month. Between these meetings the team develops the concept further. By the end of this project our intention is that the concept will be strengthened and more ready to meet the demands of the market.

The concept may be in its very early stage, but there needs to be an intention, a story idea and one or more characters should exist.
The recommendation is to have an original concept (no adaptations) and that it is an internationally interesting story. It is also recommended that the concept has not been pitched to broadcasters or streamers, but this is not a requirement, if the concept still needs further development.

Four (4) fiction projects will be selected. In the beginning of June, a joint meeting of the four selected projects will be held, followed by an individual meeting for each team (time agreed with Johanna). Then meetings can be scheduled for August to mid-December.

The material submitted needs to be done in English, so please submit your application with attachments in English.

The application period is open until 17th May.
