How do you take a single idea and spin it off into a franchise?

Now’s the time to think big with your ideas. Time to let go of the notion that one idea equals one show or programme. Ditch the endless cycle of development.

Refresh your thinking in this session featuring the amazing Australian producers who make a living out of creating and reinventing formats for audiences in this country and around the world. 

How did the idea of renovating one room become The Block – a hugely successful returning series? What do you need to do to create a quiz like The Chase that shows on screens around the world? Is it really possible for an Australian comedy to be successfully adapted for international audiences?

All of these questions – and more – will be answered during this exceptional Running Free Live session. 

Hosted by Denise Eriksen, Media Mentors Australia

Running Free Live is presented in partnership with ACMI, Film Victoria and Media Mentors.
