The Development Collective
Robert helped launch The Development Collective, a group of people who conceive, create and develop original Canadian content programming. We don’t all work together: we have our own companies, our own goals, sometimes compete and sometimes collaborate. But despite our differences we are all united because we all hustle to make new Canadian-bourne content come to life, whether it’s on TV, OTT, film, VR… or whatever gets invented next.
