The MEDIAPRO Group announces its firm commitment to the formation of new creative talent with the announcement of an official Master of Creative Writing and Screenwriting in collaboration with the Complutense University. Faithful to its origins, the Group takes up the historic initiative of Globomedia, who for more than 13 years has identified and trained the most outstanding fiction creators in Spain through its Master in Screenwriting in collaboration with the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos.
MEDIAPRO seeks storytellers and story creators who know how to hook in the viewer and manage to keep them glued to the screen from the pilot episode all the wat through until the end of the season, in movies, on TV or through new windows and digital formats. The company brings its wealth of experience, the talent of its creators and the possibility of putting into practice the knowledge acquired in one of the more than 20 productions the Group has in operation around the world. The goal: to create a new generation of storytellers who bring Spanish fiction to the entire world through its 53 offices in 35 countries.
The MEDIAPRO Master in Creative Writing & Screenwriting gets underway this coming academic year, 2019/2020, endorsed as an official degree qualification from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid’s Faculty of Information Sciences. The master, divided into 3 major areas (film, TV and digital) will have the collaboration of prestigious fiction professionals linked to the Group. Javier Olivares (“The Ministry of Time”, “Isabel”); Iván Escobar (“Locked Up”, “Kamikaze”); Ran Tellem (“Homeland”, “The Paradise”); Daniel Burman (“Lost Embrace”, “Edha”) and Los Javis (“Paquita Salas”, “On The Line”) are just some of the creators that will be part of the large group of lecturers. Students will be able to do internships in the big productions, national and international, that the Group has in development.
