Script to Screen TALKS 2019: What are NZ Distributors looking for?
Got a script in development? Have you thought about your audience? Listen to this Script to Screen TALK and find out what local distributors consider before they take on a project for distribution. Having a strong script and a great filmmaking team is not enough. Most often, unlocking NZ Film Commission production funding depends on a commitment from a local distributor. Hear from Mark Chamberlain at Transmission, Andrew Cozens at Madman, Nigel Forsyth at Studio Canal and Kevin Gordon at Rialto Distribution. Entertainment lawyer, Sarah Cull talks to the panellists about what they look for and why, including genre and story elements, team, and at what stage of development they like to get on board. This talk took place on Wed 3 July 2019 at Te Auaha in Wellington, New Zealand. This TALK podcast was made possible thanks to the support of the New Zealand Film Commission and White Studios the New Zealand Film and Television School.
