Third round applications are currently open for the 2014 scriptshop intake at Open Channel.
Now in its fourth year, scriptshop has developed 37 film and television projects, and a number of projects have already filmed, or are in development with established Production Companies.
2013 graduate, Anne O’Hoy talks here about her experiences of the course.
“My relationship with Open Channel grew out of my experiences with their Raw Nerve program. My submission ‘In Fantasy’ was one of three selected to be produced as a short film with the help of Open Channel. I wrote and directed it.
I was encouraged by the support Open Channel gave me to sign up for scriptshop.
I went into the course with a specific idea for a TV show based on the ‘In Fantasy’ short film, but throughout the year this idea blossomed into something even more beautiful.
A really important benefit of being at Open Channel was that it enabled me to focus on a single piece of work, rather than other courses which have quite a broad focus.
Writing scripts and making films is fun but I had always struggled with pitching and the business side of things. I can truly say that the course not only gave me the skills to hone my idea but, critically, to identify which industry leaders to approach to turn it into a reality, and to present a kickass pitch!”
Scriptshop is Australia’s only year long script development course.
Open to writers, directors and producers with an idea for a feature film or TV series to be developed.
