With their unique perspectives of the marketplace, our panel of international commissioners discuss the opportunities for both scripted and unscripted producers in the evolving landscape. How are they working together to finance high-budget content at a time when the emphasis turns away from global appeal to reflecting local taste and culture? What are the day-to-day realities and timelines involved in international collaboration, and how does the scripted model differ from unscripted? We ask the commissioners to break down exactly how they are working together and reaching out to the international production community and crucially, with so many more buyers in the market, how a ‘no’ to an idea in the UK might be converted to a ‘yes’ in Australia.
