ScriptLab trains scriptwriters and directors developing a script for a feature film, as well as story editors.

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;
