Funding: CMF 2017-2018 Advisory

For those of you seeking funding, the Canada Media Fund, a major funding source for digital media – including game development – has just announced its 2017-2018 budget, guidelines, and deadlines.

Details here

We have a home!

Just got the confirmation, Gamedev NL is now officially set up as a member at Common Ground! This means we  can start meeting in person, hopefully starting in mid-April.

With that out of the way, we’re looking for a few good panelists to talk about the state of the game development industry in Newfoundland and Labrador. If you know anyone, contact us.

Also, a reminder that we’re still looking for sponsors. If you or your organization would like to offer support to this group, please email us.

Meeting spaces!

Today I toured the Common Ground office on Harvey Road. Tomorrow I’m checking out NIFCO on King’s Road. Hoping to have a venue for our first meetup figured out in the next week or so.

Reminders

We still need someone to deliver a talk for our first meetup. If you know someone who might be interested, please do drop us a line!

GDNL is still looking for sponsors to help cover the costs of a meetup. If you or your company would like to offer support, why not send us an email?

First Sponsor

We have our first sponsor! Perfect Minute Games will be an Epic sponsor, providing $25/mth to the operation of the group.

Full disclosure: Mike Burton is the person behind both Perfect Minute Games and Gamedev NL, so this was a particularly easy sponsorship to get. But this brings us significantly closer to being able to rent a space in town for regular meetups!
