Script to Screen with Tim Balme

Tauranga Arts festival

Screenwriter, actor and director Tim Balme de-mystifies the world of 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
•  From idea to 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 StreetOutrageous Fortune and Brokenwood.

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