Dirty Dozen Collective presented to EAVE Producers

Dirty Dozen Collective was presented to european producers by our member MAJA PEK during the 2016 edition of EAVE Producers Workshop held in Druskininkai, Lithuania.
EAVE aims at fiction and documentary producers but in the last years has also organised smaller sessions about TV drama production in the framework of EAVE Producers Workshop.
Matti Hallonen, producer of Bordertown held a session on the writing process of TV drama, followed by the presentation of Serial Eyes programme and Dirty Dozen Collective by Maja Pek. Producers were very interested to find out how to create, develop and produce TV series and what is the role of a showrunner.
Thank you EAVE for supporting us!
