New Dragons in the Den

Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

Thursday 2 July 2015 1.45-3pm @ Showroom Cinema 4

This hugely popular session is returning for its fourth year! [The format doesn’t change – why change it? It’s “hugely popular.”] Same presenter, same monetary stakes – but the judges and producers are all brand new!

This session has a ‘Dragons Den’ format and dragonis presented by Karl Woolley in his inimitable style. The format allows several producers an opportunity to present their creative ideas to a panel of four potential funders, and to pitch for financial investment while offering a stake in return.  Heckling from the audience comes as part of the package, while we watch the negotiations take place and the deals emerge.

This year our judges are:

Sarah Muller, Head of CBBC Acquisitions, Animation and Drama Development.

Eryk Casemiro, Chief Creative Officer, Zodiak Kids Studios.

Joan Lambur, Executive Vice President of Family Entertainment, Breakthrough Entertainment

Dylan Collins, CEO of SuperAwesome

Our judges have flown in from Canada, France, Ireland, and Salford. Who will catch the Judges’ eye? And who will splash their cash? Or will the dragons save their money for a good night at the bar? See you on Thursday at 1.45 pm.
