BVE 2015 is gearing up once again to be the UK’s only event for the broadcast and production industry from creation to consumption, encompassing TV, film, live events, theatre, social media and other broadcast media. BVE 2015 takes place from 24-26 February 2015 at ExCeL London and registration is now open.
“When live theatrical events are being broadcast to cinemas in 4K, and the AV world is converging with ‘traditional’ broadcast, the very term ‘broadcast’ becomes something much wider than before,” said Alison Willis, event director. “It’s increasingly important to have an event where people from all areas can come together to discuss their experiences, share their knowledge and learn from each other, and our aim with BVE is to ask the right questions and bring in experts who can answer them.”
BVE’s nine theatres will present over 120 hours of free sessions, covering all aspects of the industry from commissioning to distribution innovations. Confirmed highlights to date include:
- Dan Patton, VP digital media, UK, Australia and CEE, Viacom International Media;
- Adam Davis, global head of crowd simulation and motion capture, MPC, whose recent VFX credits include Guardians of the Galaxy and Harry Potter;
- Sue Quinn, location manager who has worked on The Edge of Tomorrow;
- Peter Robertson, one of the UK’s leading camera/steadicam operators whose credits include Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and Anna Karenina
The Skills & Networking Zone enables all visitors to talk to experts sharing their knowledge and advice on career issues, business concerns and how to progress in the industry.
BVE 2015 will also address the skills shortage in production and engineering, with a dedicated afternoon for the ‘Broadcasters of the Future’ taking place on Thursday 26 February from midday.
The broadcast exhibition will once again be the chosen launch venue for many new technologies and products, and over 95 per cent of the exhibition space is already sold.
