Limited Capacity seats available

This paper explores the elements of the creative process with regards to new television formats from a professional perspective. A case-study, of the lifestyle program Strömsö, identified 14 elements of the creative process that elevated the program beyond the craft of storytelling for television. The case study lies at the intersection of media and creativity. Through the lens of creativity theories the inherent creative process is explored. The aim is to find a model helpful for television producers, developers and professionals involved in creating new content, not only when creating new television formats, but also creating content for new media.
