At The Boat Builders Yard (http://theboatbuildersyard NULL.com/cms-contact) from 6pm – 9pm (talks starting at 6:30) in South Wharf we are pleased to give you some inside info on what it takes to secure funding from people who have been there and done that.
Ben Britten: As part of Tin Man Games (http://tinmangames NULL.com NULL.au/), Ben has written successful funding applications and is now one of the assessors for the fund (yes, he’s one of the people you’ll have to impress)
Chris Wright: The Chief Surprise Architect from Surprise Attack (http://surpriseattack NULL.com NULL.au/) has been involved in three successful funding applications in collaboration with his indie clients, and can give tips on this too, as well as what it takes to be able to access even bigger pots of money.
Chris Watts: Chris’ company, Play Bit Entertainment (http://www NULL.playbitent NULL.com/), has also been on the receiving end of Film Victoria funding for his recently released Facebook game, Puzzle Treasure (http://apps NULL.facebook NULL.com/puzzletreasure/?ref=ts)
And of course, Film Victoria’s own Brad Giblin will also be there to answer your questions.
As we are limited for space, this event is for those looking to secure funding in the next round of applications or the near future. We will be looking into holding a more general ‘How to Secure Funding’ event later in the year to cover not only Film Victoria, but also Screen Australia and any other relevant funding bodies.
Please be sure to RSVP via the facebook event (https://www NULL.facebook NULL.com/events/284818771586451/).
