The Screen Production and Development Association (SPADA) and the New Zealand Writers Guild (NZWG), in association with the New Zealand Film Commission, are excited to launch ‘Creative Collaboration in Action’ (the ‘Programme’), a dynamic and interactive online training programme for writers and producers in 2021.
The Programme comprises five online modules (approx. 2 - 3 hours per module) over a four month period. As part of the Programme, SPADA and the NZWG will also develop a “Best Practice Guide” for participants. The Programme is aimed at emerging to mid-career writers and producers, and will reflect diverse voices and lived experience across facilitators, panellists, and contributors.
The Programme aims to deliver the knowledge and skills necessary to build strong creative partnerships, as well as encourage and support the formation of new teams and exciting collaborations. It will help participants grow in their craft and confidence, and provide a unique opportunity to engage with experienced industry practitioners to facilitate pathways for progressing projects and careers.
The Programme culminates in an opportunity for the cohort to partner-up and pitch to a panel of screen industry funders and commissioners, a valuable and informative experience that will bring a 'real life’ focus to their work. The Programme is available to members and non-members of SPADA and NZWG at no cost due to funding support from the New Zealand Film Commission.
