Reflecting global trends, digital currently accounts for around 22% revenues but internet driven business segments (i.e. online advertising) are forecast to grow at rates well above the sector norm (all figures PwC).

From iPlayer to YouTube to Netflix, and many more in between: the growth of VOD and OTT services in the past few years has been rapid, and shows no signs of stopping. Increasingly children and young people are turning to on-demand services for their entertainment – whether it’s a dedicated app or a streaming video website.

Co-Development: When Two Become One

Co-developing is frequently a creator’s first step in getting their original concept developed, funded and produced.  It is the most common model for developing children’s content and often leads to an inexperienced creative having to make a huge leap of faith in their dealings with a much more experienced and business savvy children’s producer. Using a role play between a new, inexperienced creator and a very experienced studio producer, our panel of experts will arm our new creator with the necessary guidance, information and rights know how, as to how to strike the best deal.  This session will provide a primer on…

Mind The Gap

In considering the 'gap' between mindful, calm behaviours amongst children and their rapid-fire media consumption, the panel will look at how young people’s lives have altered with rapid technological change and debate just how effective mindfulness and other ‘slow-down’ methods might be to children’s wellbeing while also considering the challenges to mindfulness put forward by some opponents. Do we just need to ‘get with the times’ or should we chill out – and how does media consumption reflect that? Using a research perspective, the panel will consider whether programme content, pace and style of production needs to accommodate or provide…

Who Wants to be a Kids’ Millionaire?

We have seen great International successes with formats in the grown-up and family space. Shows such as ‘Total Wipeout’ and ‘Ninja Warrior’ are the latest in a long line of hits. Research tells us that children are tuning in, but it appears that no one has yet made a successful kid specific version. If successful global formats do exist, why is no one specifically attacking the kids’ market? With UK production houses looking to find International hits and global networks such as Netflix and Amazon starting to dip their toe into multi-territory shows; will kids’ formats be the next big thing?

However we have also been asking #wheresrey which has shown that gender prejudice can still be ingrained in the industry’s thinking. Following on from the session on female representation in preschool children’s media in 2015 we will look back on the past year and see if the industry’s attitude towards girls has improved. We will also be opening up the discussion to include older children,…

The Changing Face of Production

The rise of digital is changing the media industry daily and production companies are increasingly considering digital platforms as an integral part of their distribution strategies. Furthermore, the last decade has seen the creation and growth of a large sector within the industry delivering digital content exclusively. The gap between creator and consumer is fast closing with platforms such as YouTube allowing creators with no production experience to reach audiences of millions. With viewing figures far eclipsing traditional linear programming, how has online entertainment changed the way content is delivered? What has the impact been on traditional routes to market…
