Invitation to WIFT Members

Posted Monday 08 Sep 2014


Organisers would like to extend an invitation to the WIFT membership to attend a Hollywood Transmedia event at the NZ Game Developers Association conference.

Two transmedia gurus will discuss how the worlds of film, TV and interactive gaming and apps are coming closer together and what it means for NZ screen producers.

"Hollywood's Business Case For Games and Transmedia"

- David S. Rosenbaum, David Rosenbaum - Former VP Licensing of Paramount Pictures and LA-based entertainment lawyer.

"Adapting Marvel Heroes into a World not just a Storyline"

- Dave Brevik, CEO of Gazillion Games, holder of the Marvel Universe gaming rights.

Hear how Hollywood IP holders view and manage their interactive licenses and transmedia apps, and how this could apply to NZ productions.  This is an opportunity for screen producers to meet New Zealand game developers who have produced movie and TV tie-in games for Dreamworks, 20th Century Fox, BBC, Lionsgate.  We'll also discuss how joint transmedia productions can work under the NZ Screen Production Grant.

The event is free, however, we require everyone to register online at:

This event is sponsored by the NZ Film Commission, Film Auckland and the NZ Game Developers Association and hosted by Colab at AUT University.
