Creating Compelling Drama for a Young Audience with Tony Ayres (AUS)


Presented by Kids on Screen and Script to Screen.

“Writing and directing for young audiences has been one of the most challenging, yet gratifying facets of my career. Not only are young audiences today far more savvy in terms of story, but they have a vast plethora of content options to choose from. This is what makes it so rewarding when you get it right.” – Tony Ayres.

Award-winning showrunner, writer and director Tony Ayres will share his expertise and insights on creating compelling and relatable screen drama for young people. Whether you’re writing drama specifically for a young audience or want to develop children and teen characters in your drama, this is an essential session to attend.

This intensive seminar will explore developing ideas into stories and making them relatable to different age groups – from writing authentic characters, to powerful, relevant themes, and crafting compelling drama that hooks the audience.

Tony is currently working on the second season of Australia’s teen drama Nowhere Boys. Series 1 of this award-winning drama series has just been nominated for an Emmy and has won an AACTA, Logie, and a Prix Jeunesse International 2014 Award.
