Join three creative producers working alongside international collaborators, to produce and share New Zealand screen stories for children here at home, and far and wide.
Fiona Copland, Hana Miller, and Nic Marshall will sit in conversation, sharing their unique pathways within the children’s screen environment. They will offer up their recent international experiences pitching, developing, producing, distributing, and championing Aotearoa-grounded screen stories within a wider global children’s media context.
Hana attended Kidscreen Summit 2023, Nic is just home from the New York International Children’s Festival where she sits on the board of advisors, and Fiona’s stop motion animation series, Kiri and Lou, is now on Nickelodeon USA adding another territory to its kete.
It all starts with a great idea, but how do you make that happen? The discussion will cover the process of gathering supporters, becoming a trusted collaborator, and staying true to your creative vision as the deals are negotiated.
Come along to hear about international trends in children’s screen stories, and to meet up with other screen creatives in Pōneke.
