Module 2.2: Group Exercise: Format Development

Description of the exercise

MEDICI Participants are divided into teams of approximately 5 team members. Each team needs to develop a format (within 30 minutes) that they will pitch in a three-minute pitch to the other teams, representing the jury, in order to secure development and/or production funding. The main challenge in this exercise is to come up with an idea that provides both content and the proper format for delivering that content. The formats are intended either for AVoD (such as YouTube) or an SVoD (such as HBO) or for a team park.
