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.”
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.
The privilege one gains as a valued member of the Incubator is priceless. And when it’s over, you certainly knew why you were chosen in the first place, and how your life in film will change.
The feedback given has been extremely helpful but as also been motivation to keep moving forward in my career. The excellent choice of helpful mentors and the feedback from the professionals after my pitch was much needed. I was especially grateful for the feedback given on my script by the story editor- script writing can be such a solitary process – her professional feedback was a gift. I hope the program continues to move forward from strength to strength
