Magnifier - Making the most of your ideas

Our Magnifier approach is designed to help participants identify and build their audiences and revenue streams from the earliest stages of a project’s development.

 Magnifier aims to maximise the value of your ideas by:

  • Expanding communication networks
  • Exploring intellectual property opportunities
  • Experimenting with ideas
  • Finding new audiences
  • Sharing knowledge
  • Building a community of mutual support
  • Unlocking the potential of your ideas


Documentary Magnifier Event

Our latest Magnifier event will be on the 2nd October at Tramshed Tech in Cardiff. This Magnifier, we are focusing specifically on the documentary genre, and are excited to be hosting Tor Vadseth from Nordnorsk Filmsenter and Lisa Nyed from Film i Skåne, as well as a cohort of Swedish producers.

Some of the themes we'll be covering are:

  • The logistics and climate for documentary co-productions
  • Findings from the Docuregio report on the current documentary market
  • How to maximise the impact and value of your documentary with live case study

There will also be lots of opportunity to network with each other and our invited guests. If you would like to attend, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

This event has been supported by Creative Europe Desk UK.

Magnifier works on the principle of sharing knowledge, value, and risk.

By participating in Magnifier, you will be at the forefront of a rapidly emerging culture of collaboration that sits at the heart of contemporary creative business.

There is potential to unlock further development and/or company funding from us, when well thought out audience and asset centred plans emerge that need more resource, such as buying in external services and expertise.

The limits will be how far you are willing to seize the opportunities: the more you put in, the more you will get out.
