Estonian TV production has always been oriented for the local market; few formats have ever been created with potential export in mind. Today we see a global market for the TV series aired on the web, social networks, and linear television platforms, with content produced all over the globe.

To facilitate audiovisual media production in the region the Narva Creative Incubator OBJEKT with the help of the Europe’s most experienced B2B accelerator Startup Wise Guys are running TV BEATS program that is designed to give extra prospective and development tools for those who are already active in the industry, and facilitate the progress for those who are making their first steps in audiovisual media and TV production.

If you are interested in the audiovisual media, vlogging, animation etc, you could learn from the best. Come and join us at the IdeaLabs, the hackathon and the pre-acceleration!
