The myth of the solitary artist is history. Value creation happens in active networks that cross industries and nations. The future growth of creative industries is in the utilization of immaterial property (IP). But how is IP generated and why is understanding the industry ecosystem so important in generating IP?
Film Tampere presents an overview of the opportunities of IP creation from an ecosystem perspective based on the surveys conducted during 2023 in Tampere region. To concrete Tampere’s success in the audiovisual industry, Ilkka Hynninen, an audiovisual executive and Creative Director of Tampere-based Ilkka’s Creative Studios, will showcase the development of Nordic Police Forces, a Nordic noir parody series, which is in co-development with the legendary American comedy writers of The Naked Gun and Airplane!, David Zucker and Pat Proft.
