The  GET IT MADE

Team Building Ball!

CenterFrame is all about the power of collaboration and community. So at Get It Made, we’ve made this a core element: yes, it’s a competition. But you have to form a team to win it! 


The writers, directors, and producers selected by the CenterFrame team and short-listed by our readers will be invited to attend the GET IT MADE Teambuilding Ball. 


At our Team Building Ball participants will meet and drink with a diverse group of creative minds, all hell-bent on telling compelling, original stories. 


Shortlisted writers, directors and producers will be able to check out each others’ profiles and work, and express an interest in meeting at the ball, and potentially form a team. 

They will have both 1-on-1 pre-arranged meetings and some free-ranged networking time to choose who to work with and form teams around the shortlisted scripts. 

These teams will work together to develop the script further and build a pitch for the project.
