Adrian Beck: Writing and TV: DECLASSIFIED

Session Info:

How do I become an author? What on Earth does a TV producer actually do? How do you juggle both worlds yet still maintain such luscious red hair?  I address each of these questions in a fun and interactive session that will leave kids inspired about reading and intrigued by the behind-the-scenes antics of television.

I reveal the secret process of how a book becomes a book and compare it to how a TV show becomes a TV show, drawing on all my humorous real-life missteps along the way.  I discuss the ideas behind my writing and where to find inspiration. Plus, I reveal some of the top-secret skills and techniques used by authors.

By demystifying both TV and writing through my personal journey, I hope to illustrate that anyone who is prepared to chase their ambitions can make it.

Topics covered:

  •  Inspired to write – where to find ideas
  •  The Year 9 Grand Final – a turning point
  •  How I got into TV
  •  Dishing the dirt on famous people (subject to legal advice)
  •  Books and TV from start to finish
  •  Q and A
