Objectives to be achieved
To refine fundamental aspects of the Project, such as the script, the production concept and the pitch, in order to connect with potential collaborators and co-producers in order to achieve at least 50% of the films financial plan in the next 18 months.
Co-production´s interesting countries
We aim at generating a co-production of Argentina with, on the one hand, Spain, which expands the market and financing possibilities (Ibermedia, for instance). On the other, Mexico, an extremely interesting Latin American market which opens an unparalleled opportunity to exploit the transmedia characteristics of the project, in the sense that, if a singer from that country is involved, it would have very attractive possibilities in terms of reaching big markets, such as the Latino in the USA.
