Northern Ireland Screen intends to run a content development programme around MIPFORMATS, MIPCUBE, and MIPTV from 29 March to 3 April 2012.
The programme will provide a training opportunity for eight junior Development Producers, Associate Producers or equivalent to experience the markets at MIP for the first time in March / April 2012.
The aim is to encourage greater cross-collaboration between television and digital content development teams and to increase their ability to deliver content suited to the increasingly platform agnostic marketplace.
The programme will pay for the participants' travel, accommodation and accreditation costs across two days of MIPFORMATS / MIPCUBE and two days of MIPTV.
MIPCube is the innovation lab for the future of TV, a two-day high-level live learning and networking event before MIPTV that creates new links within the TV industry’s community of game-changers.
MIPFormats is the largest gathering of the world’s leading producers, commissioners, buyers, distributors and aspiring creators of breakthrough formats.
MIPTV is the greatest gathering in TV & Media. It’s where the industry makes deals that will shape the future, from inspiring new projects to buying next season’s hits. Together, the entertainment community creates bridges across the diverse and expanding industry, united by a passion for TV, making new connections and unlocking new business opportunities.
As part of its overall remit to help grow a dynamic and sustainable screen industry in Northern Ireland, our objective through this targetted intervention is to help the participants further their skills in this arena , inform them of industry standards and requirements and network with peers and contacts, so they can compete effectively within the global industry.
