Friday May 24: The straight-talking Alison Nisselle, Screenwriter, script editor & script producer
Alison Nisselle describes herself as an “old chick, done everything”.  We wouldn’t dare. But what’s accurate about that description is that having worked in the film and TV industry for more than 30 years, she really has done just about everything!  As a writer, Alison has covered the full spectrum from film to TV, drama to documentary and series to serials.  What’s refreshing is that Alison delivers elder stateswoman wisdom with straight-talking accuracy.
Drawing on classic Australian serials such as Home & Away, Neighbours, The Sullivansand Prisoner, this session will take an in-depth look at the defining ingredients of a television serial; look at how they are distinguished from television series with valuable insights into how to go about writing them.
Serials often offer unique first timer employment opportunities so this session is geared for those trying to secure their first gig in the television industry.
Guests: Alison Nisselle, Screenwriter, script editor & script producer
