The Knowledge, part of MBI, is organising the first Media Production Show, taking place on 9-10th June at the Business Design Centre in Islington.
As well as hosting over 70 exhibitors showcasing the latest products and services, some of the creative industry’s biggest names will speak at the event to share ideas, techniques and plans for the future.
Event director Charlotte Wheeler reveals more about what visitors can expect…
Who should attend The Media Production Show and why?
Anyone who works in television, creates visually stunning TV and wants to learn more about making the best content across the globe should not miss this event.
Technology has had a huge impact on the creative process of programme-making from drama, factual, entertainment and documentaries to live studio productions. The show will explore how technology has advanced the images we see and content we watch from 4k capture, physical special effects, VFX, editing and sound.
From pre-production through to distribution you will find an exhibitor, sponsor or seminar which will be relevant to you. Plus it is all free to those who register!
What will I learn from the show?
There will be over 60 seminars across the two days offering practical advice, insight and creative knowledge. The seminars cover a wide range of themes including production, post-production, VFX and colourists, live production and content distribution and, along with keynote events, will be hosted in five different theatres at the venue – all named accordingly.
The sessions will comprise interviews with industry professionals who have long, distinguished careers in making TV, while also hearing from the new talent - proving that the UK is in a league of its own in content creation.
What can I see at the show?
You will have the chance to see some of the latest innovations in kit and meet leading service providers in the industry. For those interested in production and post technology, the event provides a major UK showcase for all those main manufacturers who will have launched their new products and upgrades just six weeks previously, during NAB in Las Vegas.
Some of those key brands include Blackmagic Design, Avid, Panasonic Business, Canon, ATOMOS, Cooke Optics, Zeiss and Aspera.
For those interested in services there are a number resellers to speak to plus other providers including Sargent Disc, Pinewood Studios, Kent Film Office, Seven Sunday Films and No Sheet Music to name a few.
Who is speaking?
The line-up includes major names behind some of the biggest hits of the past year including: Tony Jordan (Red Planet Pictures), Hamish Hamilton (Done + Dusted), Julia Stannard (Producer), Ben Lester (Editor), Bruce Goodison (Director), Fraser Ayres (Actor/Co-founder of TriForce Creative Network), Ed Bazalgette (Director), Jet Omeshibi (Colourist), Chris Ashworth (Production Sound), Tim Wardle (Raw TV), Daisy Asquith (Filmmaker) and Chris Nundy (BBC).
