COMPANIES ANNOUNCED FOR FULLY-FUNDED BUSINESS SUPPORT FROM FOCUS AND MG ALBA

FOCUS

Five companies have been selected to receive business development support through a unique partnership between FOCUS and MG ALBA.

FOCUS announced the partnership with MG ALBA in July this year and BBC ALBA suppliers were invited to apply to receive free business support by submitting an application on the FOCUS website.

Following a competitive process, the five final companies selected to take part are Bees Nees Media, Caledonia TV Productions, Corcadal Productions, MacTV and Mast-Ard Studio.

A total of £10k has been allocated to provide fully-funded access to specialist commercial affairs support and mentoring. This will mean an opportunity for the companies to review their company’s contracts or intellectual property, and may involve setting up effective processes and workflows.

FOCUS is a two-year pilot project that provides expert sector specific business support to screen production companies working in Scotland. By investing in targeted, sector specific business support the project aims to create a stronger, more resilient screen sector, with companies well equipped to take advantage of the evolving opportunities for content creators in a changing market. FOCUS is delivered by Film City Futures in partnership with Scottish Documentary Institute, and supported by Screen Scotland partners Creative Scotland and Scottish Enterprise.

In recent years, MG ALBA has negotiated new content for BBC ALBA through innovative international deals led by its suppliers. A series of agreements created £5.2m worth of high-quality programmes for Scotland’s Gaelic-language television channel.

Broadcast consultancy collective The Televators, run by Kirstie McLure and Nikki Tilley, have been contracted to deliver business affairs support to the participating companies. The Televators will now start work with the five companies to help them take advantage of the evolving opportunities for content creators in an ever-changing market. The result may mean growing international networks and the possibilities of further business in other territories, as well as the domestic market.

Iseabail Mactaggart, MG ALBA’s Director of Strategy and Partnership, said: “Working closely with our suppliers and FOCUS means that we can further strengthen the internationalisation of the BBC ALBA supply sector. This strategy gives BBC ALBA access to great content but also enables our suppliers to build networks in other other markets that could benefit our sector economically. These co-production and co-finance agreements are crucial for stimulating growth and expanding our creative horizons.”

Companaidhean a’ faighinn taic ghnothachail bho FOCUS agus MG ALBA

FOCUS

Chaidh còig chompanaidhean a thaghadh airson taic leasachaidh ghnothachail tro chompàirteachas sònraichte eadar FOCUS agus MG ALBA.

Dh’ainmich FOCUS an compàirteachas le MG ALBA san t-Iuchar am-bliadhna agus fhuair solaraichean BBC ALBA cuireadh airson cur a-steach airson taic saor an asgaidh le bhith a’ lìonadh foirm-iarrtais air làrach-lìn FOCUS.

Às dèidh pròiseas farpaiseach, chaidh na còig a leanas a thaghadh: Bees Nees Media, Caledonia TV Productions, Corcodal Productions, MacTV agus Mast-Àrd Studio.

Tha suas ri £10k ann airson maoineachadh an cothrom coinneachadh agus meantoradh fhaighinn bho eòlaichean air cùisean choimeirsealta. Tha seo a’ ciallachadh gum bi cothrom aig na companaidhean ath-sgrùdadh a dhèanamh air na cùmhnantan aca agus an seilbheach innleachdail aca, agus dh’fhaodar gun stèidhich sin pròiseasan agus sruthan-obrach èifeachdach.

’S e pròiseact thar dà bhliadhna a th’ ann am FOCUS agus bidh e a’ toirt seachad taic ghnothachail gu h-àraid airson companaidhean riochdachaidh ag obair ann an Alba. Le bhith a’ cur maoineachadh ri taic ghnothachail gu sònraichte airson na roinne seo tha am pròiseact ag amas gun cruthaich e roinn nas làidire, nas fulangach, le companaidhean a tha uidheamaichte airson gabhail na cothroman ùra airson craoladairean ann an margaidh caochlach. Tha Film City Futures a’ lìbhrigeadh FOCUS ann an co-bhanntachd le Scottish Documentary Institute, le taic bho chompàirtichean Sgrion Alba, Alba Chruthachail agus Scottish Enterprise.

O chionn beagan bhliadhnaichean tha MG ALBA air a bhith a’ rèiteachadh cuid de phrògraman BBC ALBA le co-aontaidhean eadar-nàiseanta. Tha na co-aontaidhean seo a’ ciallachadh luach de £5.2m de shàr-phrògraman airson seanail Ghàidhlig Alba.

Tha comhairlichean craolaidh na Televators, air a ruith le Kirstie McLure agus Nikki Tilley, gu bhith a’ tabhainn taic ghnothachail gu na companaidhean a bha soirbheachail. Tòisichidh na Televators sa bhad gus an cuidich iad na craoladairean ann a bhith a’ gabhail brath air na cothroman sna margaidhean aca. Dh’fhaodar gun adhbharaich seo fàs ann an lìonraidhean eadar-nàiseanta agus an seo ann am Breatainn.

Thuirt Iseabail Nic an t-Sagairt, Stiùiriche Ro-innleachd is Co-bhanntachd MG ALBA: “Le bhith ag obair gu dlùth le ar solaraichean agus FOCUS tha sin a’ ciallachadh gu bheil sinn a’ neartachadh nan ceanglaichean eadar-nàiseanta a thaobh prògraman airson BBC ALBA. Tha an ro-innleachd seo air barrachd chothrom a thoirt do BhBC ALBA airson susbaint aig àrd-ìre ach tha e cuideachd a’ leigeil le ar solaraichean càirdeas a thogail ann am margaidhean eile a dh’fhaodar a bhith feumail dhuinn gu h-eacanomaigeach. Tha na h-aontaidhean co-riochdachaidh agus co-mhaoineachaidh seo cudromach airson a bhith ag adhbharachadh fàs agus leudachadh sna roinnean cruthachail againn.”
