Writing Viral Web Series – Euroscript Screenwriting Workshop with Alizée Musson

Friday 30th November 10.30am – 5.30pm

Workshop Content: Today, the web is made of a wealth of original fictions. Both brands and media producers have a strong interest in developing video content to connect with global audiences online. This represents a great opportunity for screenwriters wanting to get their stories produced.  So how do you navigate this web content space?  As a writer, who can you approach to pitch your ideas to? What is the best narrative structure for online videos?

  • Through this course you will:
  • Learn how to create character-driven plots for online videos.
  • Develop a strong understanding of the narrative structure and pace of web fictions (from web-series to explainer videos).
  • Discover the latest online video trends and the key to going viral.
  • Learn who is commissioning online video content (from brands to broadcasters) and how you can approach them.
  • Develop a new or existing story concept for the web and get professional feedback.
  • Present your ideas to the group and practice your pitching skills.

You don't need to have a story idea to attend this course. Prior to the course, the tutor will email you a list of suggested web fictions to watch though this isn't mandatory.
