»How to be a staff writer; or, why there is no I in team.«
Lawrence Meyers, Inside the TV Writers’ Room

 

The MA Serial Storytelling at the ifs internationale filmschule köln is Europe’s first and only Master’s Programme focusing on collaborative writing for series.
Focusing on both local and international series markets, this intensive two-year degree programme combines story development skills, collaboration techniques (»Writers’ Room«), and the innovative approach of artistic research.

 

Students work with highly acclaimed international guest speakers and scholars, such as Jane Espenson (Battlestar Gallactica, Game of Thrones), Kath Lingenfelter (Westworld), Lisa Albert (Mad Men), Annette Hess (Ku’damm 56/69/63, Wir Kinder From Bahnhof Zoo), Oliver Kienle (Bad Banks) or Jeppe Gjervig Gram (Borgen, Follow the Money).

 

The programme is supported by industry partners such as RTL Media Group, ZDF, SKY Deutschland, Paramount, btf bildundtonfabrik, Série Series, Series Mania, and the Film Festival Cologne.

 

 

Target Group:

 

Talented aspiring series writers with advanced team working skills, an interest in academic and creative research and at least one year of relevant work experience.

 

 

International and German-language Tracks

 

For the majority of courses, the group of 16 students joins together. Thus, this programme mostly takes place in English.

 

However, for more elaborate writing projects and for classes geared to specific series markets, students may split into two tracks.  In these specific cases, students of the international track write in English for international audiences, while students of the German-language track study and write in German with a focus on German-language series markets.
