Professional Days 2016 Review

In it's second „season“, SERIENCAMP PROFESSIONAL DAYS, now a two-day-event, once again welcomed participants from all over Europe to the HFF Munich. The program showcased remarkable new series from Belgium, Sweden, Israel and France and explored their creative processes through case studies and talks with the shows' producers and writers.

The newly introduced section MAKING A HIT SERIES covered specific aspects of production, licensing and marketing, while the panel discussions focused on education and further training of talent in the TV series sector.

Two pitching events for writers and production companies led to lively talks and discussions at the get-together that concluded the 2016 PROFESSIONAL DAYS.

PROGRAM 2016

KEYNOTE
Francois Lhomme (Eurodata TV) gave an overview of key audience figures, trends and successful series in other European countries.

DIX POUR CENT (CALL MY AGENT) a charming satire about the media circus from the perspective of the employees’ of a Parisian talent agency was last year’s surprise hit in France. Producer Harold Valentin gave an insight into the production process. DIX POUR CENT later received the SERIENCAMP jury-award for best show.

WRITERS’ VISION PITCH
This year for the first time, the WRITERS’ VISION PITCH gave seven European writers the opportunity to present themselves and their projects to our audience.

PRODUCERS’ VISION PITCH
The innovative PRODUCERS’ VISION PITCH had European production companies like RED Productions (UK), Love My TV (France), Bavaria Fernsehproduktion (GERMANY), UFA Fiction (GERMANY) and Neue Super (GERMANY) pitching their philosophy, vision and demands to a restricted audience of writers.

CASE STUDY: KILLING GRANDMA (ISRAEL)
With its characteristic black humour, the Israeli Comedy-Series KILLING GRANDMA won a series of prices in its home country. Creator David Ofek and writer Lior Shefer told us about their work in a very entertaining case study, including some new insights into the Israeli series sector.

PRESENTATION: WRITERS’ ROOM:LAB
Participants from the first German programme Writers’ Room:Lab presented their experiences of the collaborative workshop.

PANEL: TRAIN THE TALENT
In the last few years a lot of training programs for writers and producers of TV series were set up in Europe like Serial Eyes (Germany, UK, Denmark), IFS (Germany), Midpoint (Prague) or Racconti (Italy). We talked about methods and perspectives with alumni from these programs from France, Denmark and Germany.

INTERVIEW: MAKING A HIT SERIES - COLLABORATION
In the section MAKING A HIT SERIES, we focus on particularly remarkable aspects of current and future successful series. Pieter Van Huyck (Head of Drama, deMENSEN – Belgium) and writer Sanne Nuyens talked with journalist Torsten Zarges about their work on the extraordinary crime series BEAU SÉJOUR.

CASE STUDY: BONUSFAMILJEN (SWEDEN)
The production company FLX proves that Scandinavia has more to offer than just Nordic-Noir crime thrillers: The boyband-comedy BOY MACHINE is followed by another big success – BONUSFAMILJEN. Creators Moa Herngren and Clara Herngren talked to Prof. Tac Romey (HFF) about their work on this patchwork family-dramedy.
