Future Talent from BBC Writersroom - Opens for Submissions

Posted on 23 February 2015

GET INVOLVED. GET CREATIVE. TAKE THE DIGITAL WORLD BY STORM. FUTURE TALENT is your chance to create your own online drama, interactive or comedy pilot.

BBC Writersroom with BBC Radio 1Xtra and The Space join up to bring you FUTURE TALENT, an exciting new opportunity launching in the West Midlands. Bring your ideas to life and write, produce, perform, direct and edit your very own pilot webisode. Do it yourself or work with your mates, film it on a smart phone or HD camera – this is your chance to bring bold and original ideas to life, tell great stories and develop fresh characters.

The best web pilots/digital interactive ideas will be judged by Adil Ray (Creator, writer and star of Citizen Khan), Yasmin Evans (BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Breakfast Show host and DJ) and Kate Rowland (BBC Creative Director). The selected pilots will be showcased online and the winners will be given the opportunity to develop their series.

Why Get Involved?

Produce original drama or comedy content you’ve always wanted to make and get it in front of industry experts and BBC decision makers, and get your work online.

How Do I Get Creative?

Let your imaginations run wild – create whatever you want, with whoever you want and film it wherever you want! Your work will purely be judged on its originality -be real and keep it real!

Why Take On The Challenge?

Inject originality into your characters, grab the attention of audiences and create a pilot with series potential. Can you create something with no budget using only the available resources around you? Got a phone? Go on we dare you!

Who Can Apply?

Anyone living in The West Midlands who is aged 16+ can apply –whether you consider yourself an aspiring writer, filmmaker, producer, director, actor or not – there are no restrictions.

How To Enter

Enter individually or as part of a team. All you need to do is send us a link to your original filmed pilot episode and a proposal (1/2 pages) outlining the series, episode and character breakdowns. If you have created the pilot as part of a team then just one member must submit the idea.

Submissions will open from 16th Feb – 2nd March 2015. All entries must be submitted via the Writersroom online E-Submissions system.
