MIDPOINT TV Launch 2018 is off to a great start with a successful workshop 1 behind us; HBO Europe confirms cash prize of 5.000 USD to Best Project, and TV Launch announces new cooperation with CANNESERIES Institute.
"The multi-faceted levels and unique classes offered at MIDPOINT I believe fosters an amazing inspiring place for creativity to grow and shine. The students were so bright, thoughtful, talented and creative. Their passion, care and energy in working to find the right path and direction for their projects was most admirable. The experience greatly exceeded my every expectation."
– Core Tutor Maggie Murphy, Head of Shaftesbury U.S. and associate professor at UCLA
"The experience of working with a multi-national group of highly talented creators was not only inspirational but a lot of fun to boot. These are all deeply unique and riveting projects on their own right, with exceptional authorial voices. Just being in the room with these guys proved to be an enriching professional experience that I can’t wait to continue."
– Core Tutor Gabor Krigler, HBO Europe Creative Executive - Local Original Production, Hungary
