Cross-media projects named as winners of ‘Multi-Platform Content Across Continents’ initiative have been announced at MIPTV by Singapore’s Media Development Authority and the UK’s South West Screen. The initiative, launched last year at Asia Television Forum in Singapore, is a partnership between Singapore and the South West of England, and the fund serves to encourage Singapore and British production and digital media companies to partner and co-develop concepts. The first two winning projects are Eco Gone Mad, a factual entertainment series from Singapore’s Apostrophe Films and the UK’s Junction K, and iLand, an animation series by Singapore’s Scrawl Studios and the UK’s Wonky Films. They receive a total of up to £50,000 in funding.
