Create Innovate is a new six-month development programme for feature film producers being delivered by Northern Film & Media in partnership with leading cross media market Power to the Pixel and with support from Creative Skillset and Creative England.
The Create Innovate programme is designed to support four producers/teams as they explore the commercial and creative potential of their feature film story worlds online.
Alongside a bespoke mentoring programme they will also run a series of workshops covering a range of topics from cross-media story development to pitching a digital idea. Sessions and mentoring will be led by established industry specialists who have made money from innovative and creative digital apps, games and interactive web projects. They will help producers to develop an exciting digital project to run alongside their feature film that could not only help build audiences and expand the story world but also be an additional revenue stream. If accepted onto the programme producers will also receive a £500 bursary to help develop pitching materials and support towards travel costs.
