Notes are a critical part of making great TV. But they can be hard to get and challenging to give. Using scenes as examples, CTV’s Robin Johnston and Trish Dolman from Screen Siren, will walk through the notes process, touching on why networks and senior producers give the notes they do; the secrets of giving great notes; how to deal with notes you don’t like or agree with; and how the notes process can make TV better.
