Pilot Academy

MAKE YOUR OWN TV PILOT & WATCH IT ON THE BIG SCREEN AT SERIESFEST

SeriesFest is bringing back its popular TV Pilot Academy for high school students and extending the program to three weeks in 2020! Students will work as a team to create an original independent TV pilot through a writers room and production workshop. The team's original creation will screen during SeriesFest on the big screen! Scroll down to sign-up today—space is limited. Sponsored by CU-Denver College of Arts & Media.

 

HOW IT WORKS

For the first week, students will work together with professional writers and instructors to form a WRITERS ROOM to create an own original episodic concept and pilot script. Following that, students will move into PRE-PRODUCTION under the supervision of professional filmmakers and showrunners to plan and strategize their production, scout their locations, and audition and cast actors. The second week will be on PRODUCTION where students will film their script on location with professional actors. Industry professional filmmakers will work with the students to give them the opportunity to learn the roles on set and film their TV pilot. The final week of the program is on POST-PRODUCTION where the students will sork with proferssional editors to edit and complete their pilot. Upon completion, the student's original TV Pilot will be screened at the highly acclaimed SeriesFest with photo opportunities on the red carpet.

  • TV Pilot Academy meets five days a week Monday-Friday from 9am–4pm: June 1–June 19, 2020
