Take a strategic approach in film

IT TAKES more than just a good idea to get your film or television project produced.

That advice was offered by some of the Northern Rivers' experienced screen producers at the launch of Screenworks professional development program, THRIVE in Bangalow on Wednesday.

One of the guest speakers, writer-producer Deb Cox (Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, East of Everything, Sea Change) shared stories of her career highlights and challenges.

"When I read through the aims for THRIVE, I was struck by how clearly and intelligently it's managed to pull together the strategic approach to screen production that it's taken me nearly all my career - and many years of trial and error to arrive at," Deb said.

"And with THRIVE's focus on the development process - rather than the ideas that seed the process - Screenworks recognises that a wonderful concept is only the beginning."
