NSI Series Incubator is an eight-month, four-phase, in-depth training program for producer / writer teams from underrepresented communities to meaningfully develop a scripted series with support and guidance from experienced industry professionals. The program culminates in the creation of a series proof-of-concept film (a stand-alone short film, a scene from the series or a promotional trailer). Participants receive up to $28K in cash and in-kind support.
Teams are divided into producer and writer streams. Participants will engage in workshops, presentations, masterclasses and hands-on learning with the support of targeted, one-on-one mentorship.
This training will empower participants to learn the steps of how a series makes it from pitch to production. Teams will learn the system and their role in it.
At the end of the program, you will have a completed series proof-of-concept film and have the knowledge and tools for you to tell your story, your way.
