“The possibilities arising from the R&D into various productions pipelines being delivered through MyWorld are so exciting. There is an opportunity to help break down production barriers of cost, access to specialised facilities and skills and to enable producers of all backgrounds and resources to engage with these new processes and products. As well as funding research projects, MyWorld is investing in a range of production facilities and equipment to try and build capacity in the West of England and make sure that our region’s truly amazing producers can get access and grow our already stellar reputation for great quality creative content and research."
