This session is part of the ‘Mind Your Business’ strand which offers training in a range of finance, HR and business affairs related areas, giving you the tools you need to thrive in your chosen field in unscripted TV.

This is a two-day course, please only apply if you can attend both days.

Reboot your creative thinking: these idea generation techniques have been tried and tested on projects ranging from scripted to unscripted, specialist factual to entertainment, for the BBC, to Netflix and even Facebook. You will get a chance to trial simple creative techniques to kick start new ideas and to develop them.
