Created in 2014 the Production Support Program (PSP) is CT’s production slate.
This program is designed to shepherd selected projects from pitch to production within twelve (12) months.
The PSP takes the form of creative and script completion, business planning and pre-production planning.
According to 2014’s Icubator manager and mentor Dr. Rita Shelton Deverell:
“The CaribbeanTales Incubator is an ever-evolving, growth-oriented program. This year we concentrated on sustainable series targeted at the worldwide African/Caribbean Diaspora, rather than one-offs. Popular series are what the industry and audiences demand, and our eight (8) producers each delivered excellent series products ranging from children’s animation and sci-fi, to drama and documentary.”
It was a life-changing experience for me. I think differently, I understand the industry and I am not lost anymore. I feel like the hero with a thousand faces of the Joseph Campbell’s Monomyth. Through the CaribbeanTales Incubator, I descended into Hell and I am now a reborn creator with a clear vision and the right tools for success.
Regardless of your level of expertise, the workshops are an excellent venue to hone your craft. The mentors really push you to go further so to get those pitches as concise and catchy as possible. It helps to get ideas and comments from other people which serve as a springboard to actual pitches.
There was a sense of camaraderie that we experienced near the end of the workshops when we really started to help each other out with tips and moral support before and after the Big Pitch.
The whole process made us also connect with old and new filmmakers and contacts back at home and revived a project we wanted to do for a long time.
