Congratulations to all those selected for the Strength In Numbers programme, run by Script To Screen. There were quite a few WIFT NZ members among them - we've highlighted you all below:

FLUROBLACK; Amber Easby Hex Work Productions; Morgan Stewart MHM Productions Ltd; Amber Marie Naveria The Granary; Matasila Freshwater & Thomas Coppell, Tomorrow, Rain; Ruth Korver Useful Media Ltd.
They get to participate in a series of workshops run by Script to Screen and led by David Court of Compton School.
Strength in Numbers offers a unique opportunity for practitioners in the screen industry to work together on the building blocks of business models that will sustain their future and ultimately shape the industry itself. Participants are given the time and tools they need to make strategic choices for their creative enterprises and plan the way ahead.
Three experienced industry practitioners including course leader David Court read each of the 46 applications, taking into consideration the applicant's track record and the stage the business is at when making their selection. Of the 10 screen businesses selected three are from Wellington, one is from Christchurch, another from Marlborough, and the remaining five are based in Tamaki Makaurau.
