DIANA ARMAS (Spain)
Técnico de productividad de los medios audiovisuales
As far as financing through pre-acquisition of broadcast rights, that is to say, buying programs that are still in the production stage, we mostly buy rights for documentaries that focus on issues that are of interest for the Canary Islands and/or are produced locally (in the Canary Islands). The topics are very varied, including personalities, history, nature, ethnography, music, traditions, social issues, etc. In short: issues that appeal to a general audience within the Canary Islands or universal themes of general interest produced by companies based in the Canary Islands.
We are especially interested in programs about 52′ length, but we’re flexible and this is not really a problem as long as the content is interesting for us. Over the past few years, we have acquired an average of 10 projects a year.
