There is no hard and fixed rule to producing content for young audience, indeed there are many ways to produce and many different kinds of producer. This Q&A masterclass gives you the opportunity to explore some of these areas by putting your questions directly to Raymond Lau, development exec NI and series producer Zodiak Kids Studios.

We are asking you to submit your questions in advance so Ray can prepare a unique tailored session. Please send your questions to freetvtraining@screenskills.com putting Ray’s name in the subject line.

The deadline for question submission is midnight on Wednesday 10th June. There will also be the opportunity to ask additional questions during the session.
