Serieskolen med DR Ultra - a national talent development programme in live-action and animated series 

TAW's Open Workshop partners up with Danish film workshops and DR Ultra to deliver an amazing talent development programme in fictional live-action and animated TV series.

DR Ultra and the Danish film workshops join together to scout for the future storytellers of youth- and children series.

Serieskolen med DR Ultra (the Series School with DR Ultra) is a 3-year partnership between DR Ultra and Filmtalent, including the film workshops in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Odense and Viborg. The ambition is to find and develop the next generation of talents and creative storytellers of Danish series in youth- and children fiction.

We are proud to announce our participation in the Danish national development programmes, 'Serieskolen med DR Ultra'!

The Animation Workshop's Open Workshop is one of the partnered film workshops who are behind the initiative.

'Serieskolen med DR Ultra' span over two phases:

In the first phase, participants can join introductory, basic and advanced online sessions, open and free for all who wish to engage in series-production for youth and children.

In the second phase, participants sign up for an intensive talent development programme through five weeks of boot camps for 20 selected participants. This phase requires the participant to apply. We also recommend the applicant to have participated in some of the workshops, but this is not a requirement. The boot camps each focus on a specific topic: idea- and concept development, universe and worldbuilding, character development, directing and episodic storytelling, and finally pitch training. By the end of the second phase, the participants can pitch their ideas to DR Ultra and the Danish series-industry.
