Creative Front and Wired Present:
The Price of Storytelling
Independent film-making has entered a new era with regards to financing films. New models enabled by crowd-funding, partnerships with online distributors and low cost, high-quality filming equipment have started to change the way films are being made – and the cost in doing so.
Brought to you by Creative Front – the business network for creative professionals in Cambridgeshire - and Audio Visual special interest group Wired. This event brings together film makers, distributors and producers to explore new forms of funding film-making and the use of online/social media to tell stories.
and our panel include Sloan U'Ren and Ant Neely, Cambridgeshire-based
Director and Producer, who mortgaged their house to fund their new feature,
Dimensions, Heather Leach of Ginger Army Productions who produces long
and short form media for multiple platforms and recently won the Current
Crowd-Funding Pitch at Sheffield DocFest to make her new film, Dancing with
Hugo Boss; Suzanne Alizart of EM Media, Sally Hodgson of Sound It Out, Gavin Humphries of Quark Films, Sarah Mosses of Good Screenings and Ch4 BritDoc Foundation and Gregory Vincent of Sponsume.
The event starts at 2pm and closes at 6pm with a networking drinks reception.
