FULL DESCRIPTION:
Children consume a substantial amount of real stories via tablets, TV, mobile, YouTube channels, apps and via many other outlets. At certain ages they are like sponges, absorbing as many challenging topics as possible. We would like to turn the mirror and send a challenge back to creative documentary makers: Let us together develop documentary stories aimed at the platforms where children watch, engage, share and interact.

The RealYoung 2016 initiative is a 3-step programme with two online components and one on location meeting. The program consists of these three steps:

1) Pre-workshop module
Online video meetings: The selected project teams are preparing individually for the in-residence workshop by getting one-on-one project consultation provided via videoconference by EDN.

2) Development, presentations and networking
Financing Forum for Kids Content (Malmö, Sweden): An intensive development workshop focusing on project development and fine-tuning of project presentations (on the first day). Pitching, one-on-one meetings and participating at The Financing Forum for Kids Content (on days two and three).

3) RealYoung Online Pitching Session/video consultation
Online video meetings: 3-4 projects from RealYoung are pitched in an EDN Online Pitching Session dedicated to documentaries for younger audiences. Projects not taking part in the online pitch, will conclude the development program with an individual video consultation, mapping market potentials for the project.
