UK’s New Producer’s Alliance closes shop after 18 years
The New Producer’s Alliance (NPA) has today announced that the iconic UK organization which has offered advice and training to over 10 000 indie UK writers, producers and directors since 1992, has closed shop.Full press announcement below: Dated Tuesday, 16 March 2010 18:00
It is with great regret that the Executive Committee and Trustees announce that the New Producers Alliance ceased trading on the 8th March 2010. The recession and increased competition for training have contributed to a loss of membership income which, having taken professional advice, has left the directors of the two companies with no option but to close.
The NPA has been a valued and respected resource for independent filmmakers since its inception in November 1992 and has provided help, advice and assistance to over 10,000 producers, directors and writers over the years. The NPA has attracted a membership of many energetic people, passionate about their projects, embodying the independent spirit. Some of these were members on their way to achieving great things. But there have been countless other great moments, such as learning a trick or two at a training event, meeting a new collaborator at NPA networking event or button-holing someone you admire at one of our panels or a business breakfast.
The Executive committee and Trustees applaud all our members, past and present: long may our filmmakers thrive. We would also like to thank the many companies, organisations and individuals who have supported the NPA in the past. Special thanks too to all the hard-working staff and volunteers who have made unique contributions.
