Listen to the podcast from Nålsögat: How to establish yourself as a scriptwriter?

More films and TV series than ever are being produced in Sweden, and demand for scriptwriters is great. At the same time, it’s said that entering the film and television industry — and making a living from your work — is more difficult that ever. If this is true, why is this the case? K-play, the podcast from Kulturakademin, is sharing a discussion held during Audiovisual Days.

Conditions for scriptwriters were discussed during Audiovisual Days in two panel discussions under the title “Nålsögat — how the h*ll do you do it? (Breaking In Stories).” Nålsögat is a podcast aimed at working scriptwriters and author-directors, all of whom at some point have asked themselves: “How the h*ll do scriptwriters today work and support themselves?”

You can now listen in on the two panel discussions in Kulturakademin’s podcast K-play, which was developed in partnership with Manusfabriken.

Production: Kulturakademin
Sound technician: Peter Andersson
Moderator: Gunnar Eriksson
