Arthur Holden will briefly talk about the distinction between writing scripts for theatrical release and writing scripts for TV in its various forms: free broadcast, cable networks and online subscription (i.e., Netflix).

Focus will be placed on:

  • writing animation scripts for kids' TV
  • writing made-for-TV movies
  • adapting non-English-language productions for broadcast in dubbed versions

Holden will touch on working methods, the operative differences between purely creative writing and writing-for-hire, and writing for series TV. Questions are encouraged. There will be an opportunity for students to talk about their own script ideas — or ongoing projects — and to discuss possible strategies for developing and selling those ideas in Montreal and the wider world.
