Screenwriter, actor and director Tim Balme de-mystifies the world of making film and television in NZ from a writer's perspective, including:

  • The essential difference between the journey of a film screenplay and a television screenplay
  • Who are the powers that be and how networks operate
  • Turning an idea into a pitch (loglines, themes, one pagers, etc), what to do with it, where to send it and what might happen if someone likes it!
  • The evolution of a pitch into a treatment, into a script, into production and beyond
  • How to look after your idea, your property and your integrity as a script faces the challenges of leaving the page
  • Being a writer for TV: The difference between writing for Shortland Street, Outrageous Fortune and Brokenwood.

Using Brokenwood and other recent local shows as working examples, Tim will leave time for Q&A after his talk.

Limited to 20 people.

Proudly Sponsored by the University of Waikato, Tauranga.
