Children’s Television with Martin Baynton: opportunities to write for an international market

Stephen Campbell (creator of Amazing Exraordinary Friends) talks to children’s television producer, development executive and writer Martin Baynton (Jane and the Dragon, The WotWots) about the opportunities for writers in the international children’s television market, issues of adaptation versus original creation, and crafting long form children’s stories for the screen.

In 2003 Martin Bayton joined with Richard Taylor at Weta Workshop to make a television series out of his children’s books Jane and the Dragon. The show has become an international television hit, winning awards around the globe and continuing to screen in Canada, America, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Martin and Richard Taylor have now formed their own entertainment company, Pukeko Pictures, and have four projects in development. Their first pre-school show, The WotWots, launched this year becoming an instant hit in Australia, New Zealand and the UK.

Auckland: Tuesday July 28, 7pm drinks, 7.30 start, The Classic, 321 Queen St, $5 koha at the door
