Travelling stories and territories
TV Drama Vision is delighted to once again present inspiring international guests, upcoming projects and a comprehensive overview of what´s going on in the drama landscape in the Nordic region. Our full day seminar, dedicated to TV drama will take place on January 30.
What does it take to make a story travel?
This year we take a closer look at Israel and Iceland, two small countries that have produced drama productions that have successfully conquered the world. Our keynote speakers Sara Johnson, Yael Hedaya and Magnus Vidar Sigurdsson (presented here) will in their presentations give different perspectives on the key aspects that can make a local story travel to global success.
Yael Hedaya and Sara Johnson have both been influential in the success and outreach of one Israeli success respectively. Yael Hedaya will as one of the writers on the show BeTipul (remade as In Treatment by HBO), give us an insight into the writing process and development of the characters.
Sara Johnson will tell us about the remake and branding process of Prisoners of War (Hatufim), remade as Homeland by Showtime and other TV-concepts exported by Keshet Media Group.
Yael Hedaya and Sara Johnson are presented in collaboration with SVT and MediaXchange
As a part of our presentation of the territory, we will put the up-and-coming country Iceland in the limelight. Magnus Vidar Sigurdsson (managing director at distinguished Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakúr´s RVK Studios) has more than 20 years experience in Icelandic television, film and radio. RVK Studios is today the top TV drama production company in Iceland and Sigurdsson will tell us about the current TV drama production landscape.
Presented in collaboration with MEDIA Programme, Erich Pommer Institut and MediaXchange
In addition, we will present upcoming TV drama projects from the region, present the key players and give you insights into the trends and news in our part of the world. As guests we will have representatives from amongst others SVT, NRK, YLE, TV4, Nordisk Film & TV Fond and Copenhagen Film Fund.
