The Media Production Show (MPS) has confirmed the full line up of industry experts who will be speaking at the inaugural MPS show next month.
The exhibition, which ‘brings TV, film and commercials together across pre-production, production and post’, has added a further ten speakers to complete the lineup, including Buzzfeed’s founding editor and head of European growth Luke Lewis and Sunset + Vine executive director Andrew Preece (pictured).
The pair are joined by; Tania Alexander, director of factual entertainment at Studio Lambert; leading DOP and BAFTA craft nominee Andrew Muggleton; Nicky Sargent, founder of post house the Farm; BBC Innovations manager Christopher Nundy; and the Invisible VFX team from Deluxe’s Rushes.
The Keynote theatre offers in-depth reviews of ‘how to direct an award winning drama.’ There will be a debate around Successful Women in TV and Film, as well as a showcase on The Challenges of Live Event Multi Camera Shoots with Hamish Hamilton of Done and Dusted, who will share his knowledge on how to successfully manage the high pressure environment of the highly anticipated Superbowl half-time show with a global audience of 120 million viewers.
“The power, range and scale of the speakers is testament to the clear need in the UK for a forum to bring expertise from across the industry who are willing to engage, share and educate not only their clients, but peers and those entering the business, who will no doubt be the stars of the future,” said Charlotte Wheeler, event director of the MPS.
“The calibre of speakers is one of the most exciting aspects of the show and we are delighted to offer access to what we believe to be the most diverse range of speakers assembled.
“Our speakers range from Richard Davidson-Houston, head of All 4 and digital content at Channel 4, and the National Theatre’s Emma Keith, YouTube star Harrison Web and Suffragette location manager Harriet Lawrence, all of whom have embraced the show and are prepared to share experiences and knowledge within a forum that is very inclusive.
“We believe that the combination of key trade and craft exhibitors together with the knowledge share from the seminar programme will help to firmly establish the Media Production Show as the leading UK event for the production and post production community.”
