Devise to Deliver
How can you or your production company survive in the rapidly changing media landscape?
Devise to Deliver is a 6-month, UK-wide training scheme designed for professional filmmakers wishing to broaden their understanding of the possibilities of digital media, including developing multiplatform business skills and embracing new ways to fund, distribute and market films through digital technology.
Devise to Deliver (D2D) is a comprehensive 5-stage programme starting in January 2012 and culminating at a new D2D Market at Sheffield Doc/Fest in June where 10 selected participants will have the opportunity to pitch projects in matchmade meetings in a specially-devised version of MeetMarket.
Other stages of the programme include a 2-day Seize The Future Workshop with international experts Sandi DuBowski and Peter Broderick in Stoke, a 2-day Creative Workshop in Glasgow, and a Market Readiness Workshop in Birmingham.
