Serial Eyes at Coco 2017

In early November, Serial Eyes hosted three lectures at Connection Cottbus (CoCo), the East–West Co-Production Market at the Cottbus Filmfestival. On November 8, SE tutor and co-production expert Jan Bennemann provided an overview of financing models for TV series, the respective roles of producers and financiers, and their expectations. Afterwards, SE alumna Jana Burbach (SE 2014/15) discussed series development by providing ten useful tips and practical examples from her recent experiences as head writer. On the final day of CoCo, Klaus Zimmermann gave a key note on the future of the European television. We are grateful to Klaus, Jana and Jan for representing the Serial Eyes Programme, and we wish to thank the CoCo team for the fruitful cooperation and their lovely hospitality.
