Independent Film Career
We set out from the very beginning to build a community within the film industry that could help each person within launch their own career. Artists need support and nurturing, and can often grind to a halt despite having an abundance of talent.
Production Accelerator is a 5 week e-learning programme that focuses on creative development, building connections with audiences and the market place and developing your creative endeavours to a place where you can produce fully funded projects.
Storytelling can change the world. Great stories can change the world for the better. It is our mission to find and support the best new voices on the planet.
The global film market is mired in complexity and noise. Emerging voices inevitably get lost, and their great stories disappear. Film schools neglect the most essential part of film education; the realities of connecting your creative output with a shifting global market place and building audiences. This is where creativity meets practicality. The Lift-Off Network fills this void.
