Developing for Preschool – From Doodle to Duvet Covers

Place: South East // The Camberley Theatre, Knoll Rd, Camberley, Surrey, GU15 3SY

Type: ,

Following on from our talk with Tim and Rob in September, we continue to explore the subject of developing your ideas for TV. Join us as we delve into the world of writing and developing TV for a pre-school audience with Sarah Gomes Harris.

Sarah is the co-creator of Sarah & Duck, which she began developing in 2009. A misty period that will forever be remembered as ‘the paper cut era,’ UK animation jobs were few owing to the economic crash, and so it was as a shop assistant in a stationary shop store room that she began vigorously scribbling the pre-school pair. She has since spent the last 8 years writing, designing and creative directing 120 episodes of the show with the team at Karrot Animation. It is broadcast in the UK (cbeebies), as well as countries in Europe, the US, Japan, Australia, China and Canada.

After her work on the third series of Sarah & Duck finished, Sarah left show production to work on new projects, offering creative consultancy and writing services.

She has also for a few years had a number of personal projects on the go, which she is only just finding the time to indulge in. These include comics, writing, and film making for an older audience, and found object theatre.

Doors/Bar opens at 7pm and there will be drinks/networking before and after the event in the theatre bar. Plus the opportunity to meet Sarah.

We only have a limited number of seats and we expect them to fill up quickly. So please RSVP asap to avoid disappointment.
