#7 Screenwriting for Children and Teenagers

Let’s Talk Screenwriting!
27 March 2023, 12:00-13:00 CET, online

This first of three panels in the spring of 2023 focuses on writing children/youth content, and particularly on the integration of research on young people into screenwriting processes. Furthermore, the discussion explores how teenagers or even children can contribute to script development and what role social media plays in their involvement.

In the online session, Vilde Schanke Sundet (University of Oslo) and Katrine Bouschinger Christensen (University of Copenhagen) will present their findings on research-driven screenwriting on young audiences in a digital, diversified media environment. Specifics and challenges in screenwriting for today’s children and teenagers will be discussed together with Ashgan-El Hamus (screenwriter of, for instance, Skam.NL) and Asser Bo Paludan (producer at DR Drama, Danish Public Broadcaster, for instance of the youth series Salsa).
Chair: Florian Krauß (University of Siegen).
