Managed by Screen Yorkshire and Northern Film & Media, the national film development scheme will see each project receive £5,000 funding from Creative England.
Following five months of training, the four teams to progress to the final stage of project development on Triangle 2012, Screen Yorkshire and Northern Film & Media’s national film development scheme, have been unveiled.
The four ‘triangles’ of producer, director and writer teams and their projects, which will each receive £5,000 development funding from Creative England, are as follows:
Shock Exit For Sidney: writer James Harris, producer Sarah Brocklehurst and director Duska Zagorac
Wild Dog Country: writer Jessica Sinyard, producer Rachel Connors and director Gabrielle Russell
Glastonbury Trip: writers Lindsay Williams & Peter Kerry, producer Sarah Brocklehurst and director Oonagh Kearney
Foxglove: writer/director Ian Cottage and producer Sol Papadopoulos
Triangle mentors Hugo Heppell [pictured], head of investments, Screen Yorkshire, Caroline Cooper-Charles, senior talent executive North, Creative England, Alby James, producer and script consultant, and producer Ivana MacKinnon picked the four teams from the 75 participants who took part in a series of workshops and seminars, ran by the likes of iLL Manors producer Atif Ghani and Warp Films’ Diarmid Scrimshaw.
Guerrilla Films’ David Wilkinson and Creative England’s Anna Seifert-Speck assisted in the selection process.
Heppell commented: “We’ve now got four excellent projects and teams for the final stages, leading to first draft scripts and strong team relationships. I’d like to thank all those in the UK film industry who continue to support the Triangle scheme.”
John Tulip, managing director, Northern Film & Media, added: “Triangle has once again produced a slate of distinctive, commercial film projects that fuse the skills of exciting writers, directors and producers from across the UK. We firmly believe that this joined-up, intensive industry-focused approach is the most effective way of supporting UK film talent.”
