Globalizing Your Development Slate

Globalizing Your Development Slate

Content Tabs

This 2-hour interactive session will guide you through how you can expand your Development Slate to make it more appealing to a global market. 

The focus of the session is to provide you with a range of tools and knowledge to help you broaden your focus not from just the UK but to the US streamers and international markets.

You will be provided with a comprehensive overview of the key channels and decision makers – and how to access them. 

There will also be exercises that will teach how to brainstorm and develop for an international market, and how to make your slate “flippable” between streamers. 

What makes an idea truly global? And what are the different funding models to help you survive this challenging market?
