Inspiration Tour Alpes Maritimes Film Commission

From September 20 to 23, 2022, the most prestigious authors of international series were invited by the Alpes-Maritimes Film Commission to visit the mythical sites of the French Riviera and learn about the initiatives and actions carried out in the Cannes area to encourage creativity.
Among them, the Cannes On Air programme initiated by the Mayor of Cannes David Lisnard, the CANNESERIES series festival led by Benoît Louvet and Albin Lewi, and of course our international writing residencies Talent Unlimited represented that day by Serge Lorenzo Milan.
This was an opportunity for Matija Dragojević — laureate of the 2019 edition of CANNESERIES Unlimited and winner of the Audience Award for Best Series in Competition at the 2021 edition of the CANNESERIES festival — to share his experience in residency.

A masterclass from space – CANNESERIES Unlimited

On April 3rd, the 6 talents of CANNESERIES Unlimited attended a masterclass with Éric Laroche, sponsor of the residency and producer of EMPREINTES DIGITALES and of the new series INFINITI whose first two episodes had been premiered the day before, during the CANNESERIES Festival.

During this masterclass, Éric Laroche discussed the origin of the INFINITI project as well as the different challenges he and his team had to face: the writing process confronted with the technical requirements and the genre of the story, the development process of a French-Belgian co-production, and the confrontation of an ambitious scenario with the reality of the budgets and the means at their disposal.

Being in the final lap before the presentation of their final pitches, our residents were then able to exchange with the producer and ask questions about the different aspects of the realization of a project, from the text to the set.
