We’re excited to announce that THE CRASH has been accepted into the initial phase of Triggerfish’s Story Lab initiative, a script incubation programme launched this year with the support of the Walt Disney Company and the Department of Trade and Industry of South Africa.
THE CRASH, a 3D comedy adventure in development, tells the story of a rhino named Spike who experiences a crisis of masculinity when he is robbed of his horn.
October has been a big month for THE CRASH: the project was also invited to PFM London, an exclusive financing market to which only 25 projects are admitted globally per year.
Now in its 9th year, PFM aims to match-make financiers with producers at an intensive two-day event. THE CRASH was also one of just five projects selected for a special live pitch to an expert panel at PFM. In the same month, the project will be presented at Cinekid Amsterdam’s Junior Co-Production Market.
Triggerfish’s Story Lab will see six projects chosen from the current shortlist of twenty for further development, and potential production, in January 2016.
