Metro Screen Students Fly To MIPCOM 2010 In Cannes With Their Amazing New Project

By October 1, 2010 Congratulations

Three Multiplatform Screen Producer Scholarship students, Claire Evans, Anna Bay and James Boyce are heading to MIPCOM 2010 in Cannes to take their multiplatform concept to market.

MIPCOM 2010 attracts the key decision makers across the entire TV content value chain: 12,000 participants from 102 countries. Our three students will be pitching their multiplatform concept:

Crime Plays which was developed at Metro Screen in class and pitched last Sunday as part of a hypothetical client brief assessment.

One Liner: Crime Plays is an immersive, pervasive game wrapped in a crime story-world. It’s the Amazing Race meets Mafia Wars.

The team are partnering with transmedia production company The Project Factory, joining director Guy Gadney at the convention.

“The best outcome from their visit to Cannes would be funding of the concept to build a proto-type and they’ll be looking for film and television properties to align with.” Said Bethany Bruce Learning and Development Manager, Metro Screen.

This could mean a large international job for these Metro Screen students.

Applications for the next Multiplatform Screen Producers Scholarship close 03 Dec 2010.
