EUROPEAN NEW MEDIA, INNOVATIVE AND TRANSMEDIA CALL FOR PROJECTS
Weird Market opens the European New Media, Innovative & Transmedia call for projects. The borders between animation, video games and new media are increasingly more subtle, creating a single industry of greater power and projection. In addition, the way content is consumed and shared is constantly evolving, becoming more interactive.
With these premises, the projects are no longer conceived as animation or video games in a unilateral sense, but as transmedia products; which also involves new technologies and advanced supports such as augmented reality, 3D printing, gamification, app toys, wearables…
The main objective of this call is to promote the European market of animation and video games, increase the visibility and circulation of projects from the European Union and help find new partners to finance, develop and create strong European IPs of transmedia projects.
The call includes all animation projects, video games or new applications of technology that complete and reinforce the experience and transmedia development. In any case, projects must be related to animation or video games.
In order to apply, the projects must be developed by European producers or in coproduction with European countries. They also have to be designed to be distributed in at least two different platforms.
