What happens if you gather 15 experienced screenwriters from all over Sweden in one room with the collective assignment to create the next hit comedy series? Manusfabriken wanted to answer this question during its Comedy Series Lab, arranged at Visual Arena on November 8 and 9.
More films and TV series than ever are being produced in Sweden, and demand for scriptwriters is great. At the same time, it’s said that entering the film and television industry — and making a living from your work — is more difficult that ever. If this is true, why is this the case? K-play, the podcast from Kulturakademin, is sharing a discussion held during Audiovisual Days.
The script for the teen film Vinnare (Winner), written by Jessika Jankert of Manusfabriken, has been selected as the Swedish contribution to the prestigious Cinekid Script LAB children’s and youth festival in the Netherlands.
The projects Alias Suzanna by Jessika Jankert and Lovisa Löwhagen and Secrets (formerly Cheaters Inc) by Soni Jörgensen were two of the nine projects from throughout Europe selected to participate in the prestigious TorinoFilmLab (TFL) SeriesLab script development program.
