Second Module: 30 November to 3 December 2015 in Stockholm, Sweden

Registration deadline
1 team (maximum 3 persons) or 1 individual participant: € 1'000.-
The fee includes tuition, accommodation and meals. Travel costs are not included. Up to 11 participants (in teams or individual) are eligible for a scholarship covering part of the travel costs and full subsistence expenses, provided that they have not already benefited from another scholarship for the same expenses. The scholarships are primarily for participants from countries with low income.

It is usual to say that the "golden" triangle - scriptwriter, director or transmedia designer and producer - is at the heart of any successful project development. The ambition of Constellations is to foster the interdisciplinary co-operation within the development teams and to strengthen its actors' creative skills in order to improve the quality of the scripts while fostering a market perspective to reach a larger audience.
