Created in 2014 the Production Support Program (PSP) is CT’s production slate.
This program is designed to shepherd selected projects from pitch to production within twelve (12) months.
The PSP takes the form of creative and script completion, business planning and pre-production planning.
According to 2014’s Icubator manager and mentor Dr. Rita Shelton Deverell:
“The CaribbeanTales Incubator is an ever-evolving, growth-oriented program. This year we concentrated on sustainable series targeted at the worldwide African/Caribbean Diaspora, rather than one-offs. Popular series are what the industry and audiences demand, and our eight (8) producers each delivered excellent series products ranging from children’s animation and sci-fi, to drama and documentary.”
It was a life-changing experience for me. I think differently, I understand the industry and I am not lost anymore. I feel like the hero with a thousand faces of the Joseph Campbell’s Monomyth. Through the CaribbeanTales Incubator, I descended into Hell and I am now a reborn creator with a clear vision and the right tools for success.
The privilege one gains as a valued member of the Incubator is priceless. And when it’s over, you certainly knew why you were chosen in the first place, and how your life in film will change.
I can say that the CaribbeanTales Incubator program has elevated my status in the Dominican film community. The things I learned in the program, like preparing for a professional pitch, definitely aided in securing the funds for my first feature film, which I’ll be producing next month.
