Amidst the corona pandemic and the subsequent struggles many creatives are facing, we are pleased to announce some good news: our third round of New Creatives have been commissioned! We are supporting 21 audio projects and nine short films from across the South West. They will be working alongside Calling the Shots, Screen Cornwall, Kaleider, Somerset Film, Create Studios and Artful Scribe.
The Round 3 projects will portray fresh perspectives on mindfulness, food poverty, living with autism, the Me Too movement, Welsh fairy tales and the Haitian origins of zombies. Plus much, much more.
They will be working remotely on development with support from their mentors and will go into production as soon as it is safe to do so.
