Screen Yorkshire champions and supports new and emerging talent in the TV, film, video games and digital sectors in Yorkshire and Humber. Its unique and successful national talent development scheme Triangle 2014 is open to applications. Now in its fourth year, Triangle is a 10 month talent development programme that encourages writers, directors and producers in film to form new working relationships or “triangles”.
Cross-pollination between professionals in film, TV and visual media helps to initiate growth and expansion within the industry. Dan Simmons, Head of Film at Creative Skillset, says: “Triangle has proven itself to be a hugely successful scheme, providing significant support for writers, directors and producers from across the UK and helping them to form new partnerships which drive their careers forwards. We are very happy to be providing continued support for the scheme, now in its fourth year, and are excited to see the innovative new projects which will be developed as a result of it.”
Up to 66 participants from across the UK will be selected to take part in Triangle 2014, before being reduced over ten months down to three teams of three, who will then pitch their projects to an industry panel in London.
A series of workshops and seminars along with intensive support from industry mentors, to take place in Yorkshire and London, will support the ‘triangle’ teams as they develop their projects to be market ready. Screen Yorkshire will also be working closely with Creative England to prepare and support Triangle 2014 participants to apply to feature film development programme iFeatures.
Industry participants in previous Triangle programmes have included representatives from Studio Canal, Salt, The Works, the BFI and Film4.
