FILM DEVELOPMENT COMPANY
All film project has an opaque area for the spectator and sometimes also for professionals who discover it. This invisible part is fundamental and is dedicated to development.
Development is a complex step, multiple, ramified, long and generally, a crucial step in the life of every project, talent, which screenwriters, directors and producers go through with a feeling of loneliness that can trigger frustrations, despondencies, states of tension and contradictory concessions for the project to come, some abandons, sometimes necessary, sometimes not.
Through development, we understand developing a project, several projects, skills, talents, relationships within the network, and the market expertise, as we call it.
During the development phase, you might need a fresh stance, neither lenient, neither unpleasant, which has a look at each step of the writing process or maybe just the most sensitive parts. You might need a sleuth who finds a subjects thanks to literature, a matchmaker who presents you a writing alter-ego, a talent or partner with whom you can develop your project, a skill that the project requires in order to go further, an allie to help you build a coherent and strong strategy, a guide that can help make blossom a bud into a flower, and that it can travel to Europe, Africa, Asia and America.
To share this very specific savoir-faire, labs and international workshops enables good encounters, exchanges, awareness of the evolution of the needs, the mentalities, the expectations in order to best answer the development of the demands and stay connected to all generations.
Because each project is a prototype, because each development is the prototype of the prototype, Initiative Film has been offering for the past 25 years to accompany you in the fascinating but difficult path which is development.
