THERE is one local group with everything to gain when the NBN goes live next Wednesday.

When the first active fibre is connected and commences delivering high speed broadband to the city Short Sharp Digital will be ready to seize the day.

According to co-chair of the not-for profit group, Christina Hyde, Short Sharp Digital (SSD) has been set up to provide a portal or conduit for all things and businesses digital on the Coffs Coast.

"Initially established as the Short Sharp Film Festival Inc in 2007 to support emerging and professional screen industry we've broadened our scope over the last couple of years to support those working in the rapidly expanding digital industry," Ms Hyde said.

"To better support the sector SSD has established a 2450+ Digital Business Directory to promote the diverse businesses active in this sector on the Coffs Coast.

"For $50 a year you get to promote your business and we'll promote the directory and make sure it is linked and promoted across the Coffs Coast and beyond."

Individuals working in the sector are also encouraged and invited to join SSD as members to enable SSD to continue to provide regular networking events and professional development workshops for programmers, web-developers, animators, digital educators and others working in this rapidly developing industry.

The first industry workshop for 2103 will be held on Saturday, February 23, on "Pocket Filmmaking" run by internationally awarded multi-platform creative Jason van Genderen, the Creative Director of Treehouse Media.
