Screen Skills Ireland is pleased to offer the Sales and Distribution Clinic. This course is offered free of charge to support the Irish creative screen industries impacted by the ongoing situation with COVID-19.
The Sales & Distribution Clinic is a 3-week programme and one-on-one mentoring initiative that will prime producers for being best prepared for the future of the industry.
This programme will allow producers to gain a greater understanding of the impact corona had and has on sales and distribution and the marketplace as a whole. What has and is shifting, what patterns have developed during the global lockdown, which may or may not be reversed, e.g. change in audience behaviour, breaking of release windows, etc.
On completing this course and the mentoring component each participant will be able to prepare a strategy for distribution of their project.
Participants will be expected to complete homework/assignments during the course
