Native American Unscripted Workshop
September 14, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 pm
The Native American Unscripted Workshop is a week-long creative and development program that targets indigenous documentary filmmakers, journalists, producers and content creators. Established in 2021, the workshop provides genuine access to unscripted networks, studios and production companies that provide reality, lifestyle, sports and journalism content.
The workshop selects 10 fellows through an application and multi-tiered interview process. The week-long program has selected participants take part in an intensive program that has them meet with creative executives from renowned unscripted brands that include CNN, NBC News, Yahoo and Turner Sports. This provides a unique opportunity to learn about unscripted corporate brands, gain insight regarding non-fiction feature and docu-series projects, and their process when seeking new talent. In addition, fellows meet with established showrunners and documentary filmmakers to provide additional information.
The five day total immersion workshop is mentored and guided by documentary filmmakers and veteran producers in non-fiction television. The Native American Unscripted Workshop concludes with each selected fellow pitching a docu-series or feature documentary before a panel of creative executives.
The call for the applications for the 2nd Annual Native American Unscripted Workshop is now closed.
