After an enjoyable 5 years at South West Screen I am now setting up as an Independent Consultant – concentrating on the development of projects combining creative media and digital technologies, and with a specific focus on making strategic connections to international markets.
There are a number of ventures currently in discussion, and I’ll keep this site updated with details as they confirm. Two international development initiatives are currently underway:
Content Across Continents: I will continue to manage this project on behalf of SWS. Fast approaching the deadline for expressions of interest there are some very interesting partnerships forming between SW and Singaporean production companies around multiplatform content ideas. Development investments of £25k will be made into two proposals, with the announcements to be made at MIPTV in April.
China / UK Animation Link: In partnership with the Chinese Ministry of Commerce and the UK Embassy in Beijing I am developing a programme to link UK and Chinese Animation companies, targeting the launch of a co-development investment project towards the end of 2010. Initial focus will be on building partnerships and networks, and developing the groundwork and research to enable businesses to effectively aim at exposure in a massive marketplace, with significant potential barriers to entry.
In the pipeline are two further projects focused on digital innovation and multiplatform content, with more details to follow very shortly.
