COMING UP 2012 Scheme Launch
APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR COMING UP 2012Please note that the deadline for COMING UP 2012 has been extended to:

TUESDAY 28th JUNE

COMING UP is currently the only talent scheme in the UK where emerging filmmakers have the opportunity to make an authored drama with a guaranteed network broadcast. Now in its tenth year, Channel 4 and Touchpaper Television continue their commitment to innovation, experimentation and new voices.

Commissioned by Channel 4 and produced by Touchpaper Television, part of the Zodiak Media Group, the aim of the series is to create eye-catching, innovative, challenging films.

We will make 7 films for a half-hour Channel 4 slot.

What do we look for? Bold, original and surprising ideas with strong voices – unafraid of ambition, wit, urgency and fearless entertainment. Films that can be shot in four days on a limited budget.

Who can apply? We are looking for the best fresh and talented filmmakers out there.

Writers who have not had an original single, series or serial broadcast on UK television. Writers who have contributed episodes or series and serials (eg a long-running soap) are now eligible to apply.
DIRECTORS
Directors without a primetime TV drama credit.
WRITER / DIRECTORS
We will accept submissions from writer/directors who meet the criteria for writers and directors as per above, but excellence in both disciplines must be shown to be considered in this category.
