How do you answer the ‘pathway to audience’ question?
For anyone who has filled in a grant application, you know what it like to face that dreaded question – what’s your pathway to audience?
With platforms and delivery modes for stories changing and switching so rapidly, one of the most important early decision to make is about the audience – who are they, where are they, and how do you engage them?
This session is a discussion, with anecdotes and examples, about how current modes of storytelling identify and engage with audiences in a saturated market.
How do you align your story with audiences? How does this overlap with your financing? And what are the merits and downsides of brand partnerships?
Drawing on her mix of experiences as a ‘boots on the ground’ filmmaker and as a ‘behind the desk’ Screen Australia fund manager, writer/producer/director Rosie Lourde will unpack the shifting landscape and vital components of building your audience online (see bio below)
First Nations people, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and people with disability are encourage to apply.
