Wendy presents two lectures:
Nov 16 11:30-13:00 - Opportunities for Indies in Today’s Digital/VOD Marketplace, and
Nov 17 9:45-10:45 - Practicalities of Getting your Content on Netflix, Amazon and Other SVOD Services Internationally
On day 1, Wendy will offer an updated and comprehensive overview of the evolving opportunities, new buyers and funders, in the digital sector internationally, going beyond just the ‘big 5’ eg Netflix, Amazon, telecom and cable platforms. Her talks will include licensing existing shows as well as covering new production formats and funders, such as Originals-deals, as well as digital-first, webseries, cross-platform and (briefly) VR.
On day 2, Wendy will dig deeper into the strategic and operational practicalities of how to get your programming onto the various SVOD platforms. She will guide us through the process of precuration, packaging and approaching the platforms directly as well as via middlemen. Wendy will also discuss creative windowing and the rights aspects relevant for a Netflix / Amazon deal or another SVOD platform, as well as offer suggestions around the more creative ‘hybrid’ distribution.
