Chris Kamen, who joined Genepool in August as Producer / Business Affairs, was thrilled to attend his first World Congress of Science and Factual Producers conference in San Francisco, supported by a Screen Australia Travel Grant.
Chris writes: ‘It was an absolute privilege to represent Genepool at Congress. I enjoyed incredible access to pick the brains of the world’s finest factual filmmakers and broadcasters. The sessions were filled with seriously inspiring insights from old and new school producers, global commissioners, and silicon valley futurists. And just before it got too serious we all let loose at the famous Congress karaoke night. Thank you to Screen Australia for the opportunity to attend such a world class conference.’
Genepool Productions Producer Josephine Wright also attended the conference in her role as part of this year’s WCSFP Editorial Committee.
Genepool were honoured to have our series ‘Lawless — The Real Bushrangers’ included in the ‘What’s The Buzz’ session, showcasing the best programs in the world.
We are extremely excited to learn that the conference will be held in Brisbane next year, a great opportunity to highlight Australia’s incredible science community. More info about Congress here.
