ScriptLab trains scriptwriters and directors developing a script for a feature film, as well as story editors. It is aimed at projects at an early development stage, whose authors are willing to dive deep into the writing process during nine months of intensive work, individually and in small groups.

2) SeriesLab – for European scriptwriters, directors and producers working on original TV series projects.

A 6-month-long course which follows the entire process of creation of a TV series concept: from generating ideas and structuring the material, up to a final pitch in front of major key players of the international TV industry during the Series Mania Forum in Lille, France

These activities are all project-based and the training includes:-

- 3 residential workshops taking place in different countries; including group sessions, 1-to-1 meetings, case studies, plenaries and pitching sessions;
- A public presentation & one-to-one meetings with Decision Makers at an international co-production market;
- Competing for Development & Production Awards;
