Pilot Academy

Make your own pilot and see it screen at SeriesFest!

SeriesFest launches its inaugural Pilot Academy for high school students. Students will work as a team to create an original independent TV pilot through a writer's room and production workshop. Student's original creation will screen during SeriesFest on the big screen! Sign-up today—space is limited. Sponsored by CU-Denver College of Arts & Media.



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 final portion of the program is a two-week PRODUCTION where students will shoot and edit their final product to be screened!



Writers Room meets every Saturday from 10am–2pm for 4 weeks: May 18–June 8.
Production Camp meets 5 days a week Monday-Friday from 9am–4pm: June 10–June 21
Red Carpet Screening at SeriesFest: Saturday, June 22, time: TBD

SeriesFest is a non-profit organization dedicated to championing artists at the forefront of episodic storytelling.
