Developer POD FAQ

Developer POD is an application-based program for evolving script developers. The ‘Developers’ are the team leaders who help assist and cultivate concept ideas with Screen POD participants.

Screen POD is a format-agnostic and market driven program delivered in three streams: Process, Project, and Pitch.

Process – focusing on learning the discipline of writing for screen.
Project – putting the theory-based learning into practice – with the assistance and guidance of a trained Developer.
Pitch – pitching developed concepts to market.

It is advised that people who haven’t previously attended POD, or have little screenwriting experience, take part in all three streams.

Developer POD is open to nationwide applicants.

Previously taking place face-to-face, the program has been adapted to be COVID-safe and now takes place via an online classroom.
