If you're building a business in the screen industry, this programme is for you. Strength in Numbers is designed to teach screen practitioners about growing a sustainable and profitable business while doing the work you want to do. Run by Script to Screen, and led by Australian screen business expert David Court, it's for screen practitioners with a slate of projects and a screen industry business already underway. The programme aims to cultivate a super-smart community of businesspeople in the screen industry who support each other over time - something that's especially important for filmmakers who often work in isolation. The programme's inaugural year saw ten creators of many of our most-loved and successful films, including Jojo Rabbit, The Chills, Hunt For The Wilderpeople, Boy, The Dark Horse, Love Story, Three Wise Cousins, Waru, Vai, and Loading Docs, all brought together to focus on building sustainable businesses.
Here's what you'll need to submit:
One paragraph biography about you as a screen practitioner.
A statement about why Strength in Numbers Growth would be beneficial to you and your business at this time.
A statement about what you would like to get out of the programme.
A list of three projects you have in development along with a one-paragraph synopsis or logline for each project and what stage they are at.
Links to prior work (up to your two best).
Applications close: Sunday 1 December, at midnight. The first workshop will be in early February 2020.
