The pressure is on during the second workshop of this year’s edition of RACCONTI Script Lab! Our authors have a week left with their mentors and fellow staff writers to work on their project.
In addition some high profile guests visited this week’s workshop. Cecilia Bressanelli, journalist for the weekly culture insert of Il Corriere Della Sera, reported on this unique script lab, accompanying the writers during their meetings with the authors as well as during their intense work in the writers‘ room. She was also present for the masterclass by Israeli producer and RACCONTI mentor Maria Feldman, who shared her experience with developing high concept series such as Fauda and False Flag. Maria also provided the participants with unique insight into her upcoming project Absentia, in development for Sony.
Another guest was Dana Höfinger, aquistion manager TV at international distributor Global Screen, the co-development partner of the conspiracy thriller currently being developed in the writers room by Christian Jeltsch and the staffwriters. She held an interesting lecture on her work and the demands of the international TV market, enabling the authors to better judge the current landscape and opportunities.
