How to bring a TV series to market

If you have ever thought about bringing your own characters to life as an animated TV series, you should attend this webinar to be streamed on YouTube Live on Saturday, 4 November to registered delegates. You'll learn insights that Triggerfish gained over the last 2 years while developing TV series with Disney’s support, resulting in 2 worldwide distribution deals to date.

In 2015, Triggerfish ran a search for animation writers throughout the African continent.  The call attracted 1 378 projects from 30 countries across Africa, and eight were chosen to be taken into full development.  We discuss what made those eight projects stand out, and interview some of the creators.

Your idea could be the next African TV series to be produced and distributed internationally.  You’ll get insights into what international distributors are looking for when they review projects.  You’ll also learn directly from creators who have just been through this process and have signed distribution deals for their shows.  And you'll get a chance to ask questions via Facebook & Twitter.   

??In addition, registered delegates will also be updated by email on some of the key takeaways and on similar future events.

Are you in Cape Town?  Join us on site at Triggerfish Studios

There will be limited amount of seats available for a live audience at the studios in Bergvliet, Cape Town.  Cost is R210.  Includes refreshments and drinks after the final session.  Book here.
