The one-to-one session offers a completely personal service. It runs across one intensive day and starts from how to get an idea commissioned all the way to us writing a one-page treatment if time allows. Here’s what the session includes:
Getting an idea commissioned is not easy. We teach you how ideas make it to screens, including who makes the decisions and who you need to impress.
We share the techniques of the professionals – brainstorming, how to get inspiration and what makes a good idea in the first place.
Ideas have to be presented in a ‘treatment’ – a formatted document that explains all there is to know about the idea. It has to be written in a set way, and has a style that needs to be followed – getting it right can make or break your idea. The main focus of the day is to help you write a 1 pg treatment of your idea to walk away with at the end of the day. This is what you can then send to production companies and TV channels.
Pitching to a powerful TV commissioner can be scary and intimidating. We pass on the skills that could be the difference between you getting your idea commissioned or not.
