Last week I had the opportunity to workshop my TV pilot with the teams at EOne and the Canadian Film Centre (CFC) at their North York campus location. First of all, it’s a gorgeous place to spend a week, just take a look:
E.P. Taylor’s historic Windfields Estate in Toronto, otherwise known as CFC’s campus
Secondly, we (Kat Sandler, Michael Stewart and I) met with a fantastic range of writers and producers who took us through the stages of adapting our work for television.
Al MacGee, Lynn Coady, Martin Gero, David Shore, Morwyn Brebner and Michael MacLennan all gave us so much to think about and were incredibly open about their own journeys.
Now all we have to do is write! Next post will be about the pilot shows I’ve been watching to break them down into their act structure (thanks to Al and his day of deconstructing).
