Watch This Session

Most screenwriters choose to write for either TV or for feature films. But is there a third ‘screen’?

TV feature films are one of the least understood of filmmaking formats – they have feature film ambition and length but TV budgets. How do you write for this format? How do you break in?

Film distributor David Wilkinson will interview prolific TV-Film screenwriters Bev Doyle and Richard Kurti  and explore their journey which began with low budget feature films, passed through selling high concept big budget action movie spec scripts and landed them  in their proffered story world, TV movies.
