Join Vidya Rajan and emerging South Australian screenwriters in this mock writers' room where the team will give a realistic behind-the-scenes example of how TV comedies are created. Audience participation is highly encouraged!
Writers' rooms seem to be where the magic happens, from character concepts, to plot lines, and drama—but how does it really work? Join Vidya Rajan and a table of emerging South Australian screenwriters as they create a mock writers' room and walk participants through the process. This is a watch and interact session and audience members will receive a take-home exercise to create their own comedic story for television.
An initiative of the City of Adelaide delivered in partnership with Writers SA
