Assembler Programme 2017
Northern Ireland Screen intends to provide funding through the Screen Fund to Northern Ireland based interactive content production companies to support early stage game development.
The key aims of the programme are to:
- Prepare game development teams for the process of getting early stage concepts into production;
- Develop games that are player centric, aligned to market opportunities and are commercially viable
- Increase the number of interactive content projects produced within Northern Ireland that show the potential to succeed in the global marketplace;
- Support a sustainable screen industry in Northern Ireland.
The Assembler Programme is a TWO stage development process. All applications including supporting documentation for Stage 1 must be received by Friday 28th July 2017.
At the end of second stage of the development process it is envisaged that one project will be production ready. Northern Ireland Screen, at its sole discretion, may award up to £100,000 production funding in 2018-19 to a project that has successfully completed Stages 1 – 2 of the Assembler programme.
