Limited series is the new format that excites the audience. For film professionals, however, who are used to the «writing > financing > shooting > post-prod > release» model, limited series are quite a challenge. In the international market, they are often greenlighted prior to being written, they are shot by multiple directors, their post-production workflow is continuous to production, and another season is often in the pipeline before the first one is completed.
During this seminar, various models – in particular involving several directors with various on-going writing processes and shooting patterns – will be presented through case studies by their ‹architects›. As we will discover, there is a plan behind every limited series before it is made. A source of inspiration for future projects that provides an incentive to think outside the box.
