Attendee Testimonials

“Covering every aspect of running a TV company, it's not only helped us feel confident that we're running the business in a sensible, inclusive and sustainable way, it's also helped us really focus on ways in which we can develop it further, grow it and hopefully even supercharge it. The community aspect of it has been brilliant and… meeting so many regional indies has been a real plus point.” 

Steve Jones, Big Little Fish Television

“an extraordinary and brilliant course… transformational”

Arabella Page Croft, Black Camel Pictures

Indielab “helps you professionalise your business in ways you couldn’t imagine”

Pete Neill, Afro-Mic Productions

“A great experience, worth far more than just the six days of training. It brings you into a network of like-minded people that help you look at your business in a whole new way.”

Matt Richards, Air TV

“The quality of what is on offer is extraordinary… It has been brilliant to share commonality of experience, as well as difference, and hear how some of the most successful people in the world have dealt with the challenges we face.”

Ed Stobart, Alleycats Films

“we’ve learned a huge amount about the business of TV”

Martyn Jolly, Bingo Productions

“I understand so much more about the industry and how to be successful… (Indielab) opens your eyes to how to run a successful business, not just make successful TV”

Jacqueline Hewer, Brown Bob Productions

Indielab “will be the most cost-effective spend / time of your whole year… A huge amount of information and contacts packed into an intense short timeframe, which would usually take a long time to do alone. Also the contacts already have Indielab approval, which saves trial and error!”

Ali Quirke and Nav Raman, Chatterbox

Indielab has “allowed us to continue to think strategically about what we want to do (and don’t want to do) with our business”

Charlie Russell, Curious Films

“I have found every day of Indielab to be full of essential learning and inspiration”

Ed Wardle, Fearless Television

Indielab is “time out to think about who you are as a company, what your ambitions are, what you need to do to achieve them and when. (It has) totally changed the way I think about us as a business, rather than just a company that makes projects. Six days well spent.”

Nadine Marsh-Edwards, Greenacre Films

“It's interesting and thought-provoking. And it's a great opportunity to work ‘on’ the business rather than being ‘in’ the business.”

Ben Gale, Little Gem

“a brilliant programme for small indies intending to grow”

Iris Maor, Marble Films

Indielab has “provided us with a whole new way of envisaging our future, which will help us make more strategically-minded decisions”

Miles Jarvis and Jaimi West, Phoenix Television
