I am very proud to announce that Lucky Frame has secured project funding from Channel 4 and Creative Scotland.
This has been a very long time in the making – we first applied to Channel 4 back in December 2009, through what was then 4ip. Apparently our application caused a slight kerfuffle, with some people on the selection panel loving it and some not loving it so much. The wonderful Melanie Hayes and Lucy Wurstlin from Channel 4 eventually contacted us and invited us to talk about it a bit more.
We will eventually tell the longer version of this story, but for now I’ll just say that we worked with Lucy and Melanie to turn our core idea into a powerful and potentially groundbreaking marketable project. They also brought Creative Scotland on board via the Digital Media IP Fund, eventually resulting in the final contracts being signed recently. The project has now officially kicked off and we are very excited to get going.
But what’s the project?! Ah ha, well for that you will have to stay tuned. For the moment I can say that this is a one-year project that will combine several of Lucky Frame’s core interests into something really awesome. Over the coming months Jon and I will be blogging here about the motivation behind the project and probably dropping some sweet little hints and tidbits along the way.
