Come on baby, do the Showcomotion...
For the next few days, I'll be blogging from Sheffield, England, and the Showcomotion Children's Media Conference. This is one of my favorite annual meetings, as it's always forward looking and positive. Even in the deepest times of difficulty for the UK children's media industry (and that's not to say things aren't still pretty challenging...), the attitude at Showcomotion has always been "so, where do we go from here," instead of hand-wringing or "whinging."
Much of that "where do we go" has focused on expansion beyond traditional television, and Showcomotion is truly and deeply a multi-platform discussion.
More soon from the pre-Conference co-production workshop, a combination of expert panels, a pitching simulation, and speed networking.
