New Creative Lab to Elevate Taiwanese Unscripted Storytelling


Taiwan Creative Content Agency (TAICCA), AR Asia Productions and Something Special have aligned to establish LEAP, a creative lab to train Taiwanese storytellers in unscripted productions.

Top Korean producers will serve as program mentors for LEAP, providing insights and expertise to enhance the creative capabilities of Taiwanese creators.

The nine-month track offers a curriculum covering ideation, co-development, packaging and monetization of unscripted content. The fast-track program is designed to enable participants to create formats that can be successfully monetized both regionally and internationally.

In the first phase, 50 teams of Taiwanese producers will be selected to participate in a masterclass, conducted by Korean unscripted creators. Participants will then be invited to submit a one-page concept, setting the stage for the next phase of the program. Eight creative projects will be selected, and each will be paired with a Korean creator for further development and packaging. This next phase includes a three-day workshop in Seoul, followed by a five-month online development and packaging workshop. The final phase sees the presentation of eight fully developed programs to participate in a presentation session at the Asia Television Forum in December.
