Queensland Originals: First Concepts with AFTRS is an Australian-first partnership between Screen Queensland and the Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS) and working with international innovators to shape original Queensland stories exclusively for audiences watching on global on-demand platforms.

Queensland writers, directors and producers are being invited to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to be part of the initial briefings being held in Brisbane this month with a high profile line-up of industry leaders.  EOIs close 9.00am Monday 15 August 2016.

The briefings – designed to share the secrets of successful drama series and inspire Queensland talent to develop work that strikes a chord with global streaming video-on-demand (SVOD) audiences.

Expert Briefings will be held at The Powerhouse, Brisbane, 9.00am to 12noon, Wednesday August 24 2016.

Screen Queensland will support successful creatives to further develop their work with a view to taking fleshed out concepts to the SVOD market later in the year.

In the months to follow, Queensland creatives will be given the chance to use their new knowledge to become part of a boutique workshop to be held in late 2016, developed and delivered by AFTRS and led by a U.S. showrunner.

The story workshop will prepare up to four creative teams to pitch their ideas in face-to-face meetings with global SVOD executives and key decision-makers in early 2017.
