There is fiction for all tastes on streaming services, podcasts, books and beyond. Maybe you’ve binge watched your favourite show for the third time, and you want to create an improvised version with all new storylines. You dream of playing in that world so badly. But where do you start?
Join Velvet to talk about producing logistics -- the joys of planning, casting, delegating,… and managing expectations. We’ll discuss ways to find new fun within your favourite source material, without losing the audience. By the end of the workshop series, you’ll be ready to turn improvised fan fiction into fun fiction!
