Roseau, Dominica – A group of OECS audio-visual professionals have just ended a three-day training exercise on Developing Strategies for Producing Content for Regional and International Media with a commitment to create a regional television series, for audiences in the Caribbean and beyond.

The audio-visual producers recently met in Dominica to strategize on creating content that reflects the realities of the OECS and the people who live there.

The producers applauded the efforts of the OECS Competitive Business Unit (CBU) in facilitating a stronger and more effective network to create a range of new products about the people of the OECS. In this regard, the workshop participants were introduced to a pilot for a television series which is being spearheaded by renowned Dominican writer Dr. Alwin Bully. The group endorsed the proposed concept by Mr. Bully and agreed that teams from the seminar would work on various areas such as script development, production and research, budgeting and marketing.

The participants also agreed to work towards a draft outline for the TV series over the next three months. This will be followed by efforts at marketing the concept and creating a financing plan for a six-part series. The meeting was urged to maintain the flow communication to ensure that the desired goals are met.

Television partners in Dominica including Digicel-Play and Marpin TV pledged to work on efforts to distribute content by local producers. A representative from Caribbean Tales Worldwide Distribution was also part of the event while regional producers, from Guadeloupe and Barbados will play leading roles in the creation of the new regional initiative. The OECS CBU pledged to work closely with the region’s Audio-Visual Producers on the new series.

The 10th EDF Regional Integration for Trade in the OECS fund sponsored the workshop. The OECS CBU partnered with the Audio-visual Association of Dominica (AAD) in coordinating the event designed to further support the growth of professionals and businesses in the audio-visual sector. Additional contributions came from several local bodies including Discover Dominica Authority and the Ministries of Education and Culture. The meeting was held from March 9th 12th 2016.
