Next generation of Central and Eastern European series-content professionals and Series Launch 2022 participants had gathered again from November 17 to November 23, 2022 for Workshop 3, within the framework of Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event.
MIDPOINT Series Launch 2022 projects successfully presented at Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event!
The nine projects of the 2022 edition have already been through an intense 8-month training, co-funded by the European Union. Since starting in April 2022, they’ve worked on their concepts, pilot scripts, season outlines, as well as the partnership and development financial structures for their projects, under the supervision of their core tutors, guest tutors and a producer tutor.
The third and final workshop, held within the framework of the Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event and its TV Beats market, offering debates, panels, lectures, case studies, master classes and the pitching presentation of all projects and participants within, was focused on polishing their development strategies, and, subsequently, widening the networking, marketing and financing options for the projects. The workshop culminated in a pitching session open for industry professionals, followed by one-on-one meetings.
The season finale pitching event, opened for all accredited industry guests, took place on November 21, 2022. Find the photoreport below.
