All Star Film-making Team to Steer “The 3D Distribution Project”
CaribbeanTales Worldwide Distribution, (CTWD) just announced the impressive international team of top film and cultural industry talent that will implement the “3D Distribution Project” an innovative project financed by the ACP Cultures+ Programme of the European Union.
The aim of the 3D Project – which stands for Digital, Domestic, and Diaspora Distribution – is to expand markets for indigenous film, and contribute to the Caribbean film industry’s global competitiveness.
The team consists of long-time CTWD associates as well as outstanding professionals new to the CaribbeanTales family. Together they bring a wide range of skills, and combined years of experience to ensure the successful implementation of the project’s objectives.
Dr. Nurse is a founding Director of CTWD. He brings his expertise in economics, business development, higher education and cultural diversity to the project’s strategic management. He shared, “We are thrilled to have assembled the best global team possible and we are now uniquely positioned to tap into all key markets identified by the 3D Distribution Project.”
3D will be co-managed by CTWD’s founder and CEO, Frances-Anne Solomon, with Financial Manager Susan Johnson- who as CaribbeanTales’ General Manager and Producer, has overseen many of the company’s film television and online productions since 2003. They are supported by Assistant Project Manager Melissa Gomez. New York-based Gomez, originally from Antigua, has established herself as a Producer on US Network documentary series. As an award-winning independent film maker in her own right, she is no stranger to CaribbeanTales, and will oversee all aspects of 3D’s day-to-day management.
Film maker and Film / TV Producer Nicole Brooks is Distribution Manager, working closely with new Business Development Manager, Robert Evans, a former CBC Marketing and Distributions Executive with wide industry experience.
And, in terms of marketing, web-based content producer Rodney Smith from Barbados is responsible for the branding, design and management of CTWD’s online assets – including the pay per view channel CaribbeanTales-TV; while Sonique Solutions’ Damian Sogren from Trinidad will lead the project’s diaspora marketing campaign.
This all-star team is certainly geared to go the extra mile to ensure a triumphant 3D project. All involved are inspired and enthused to make this a victorious effort towards opening international doors for the Caribbean and African Diaspora film sectors.
