Focus on China

In this Q&A session, our panel of experts spanning broadcast, local producer, international producer and creative perspectives will discuss the landscape of content in China: what is currently popular, what content doesn’t work, what does, and what you should consider when trying to enter the Chinese market. Our panel will draw on their personal experiences, discuss their own projects, consider ways Chinese companies may look to collaborate with overseas partners, how to make contacts in the region and discuss what to expect when working with companies in China. We’ll cover the opportunities, challenges and insights into this exciting market and predict…

3:30pm-4:30pm

Focus On Mexico

With its animation production on the rise, an enduring heritage of audio-visual storytelling, and the launch of new Television stations with an interest in children's content, Mexico has a lot to offer the international kids’ community.  Come and find out why out-sourcing animation to Mexico might be more favourable compared to other countries and allow our specially imported panel of experts to guide you through a root and branch overview of doing business with Mexico and the potential it offers.

1:00pm-1:45pm

Brands and Learning

In 2014, Nickelodeon and Rovio made significant moves into the educational app market, while for many years brands such as BP, Barclays and M&S have engaged in corporate social responsibility activity in schools. Brands can use their familiarity and their assets to support learning about subjects where they have specialist knowledge, or use character and stories familiar to children and young people as the core of educational resources. If the brand name helps engage children and young people in home and school learning, is that simply a good thing? Do brands risk dumbing down education or creating a commercial playground…

2:10pm-3:10pm

Brand Overlay

Children’s play patterns have always involved a mash-up of brands. Toycos such as Lego are also brilliant at layering brands, with their top-selling products supporting other brands. The movie Toy Story pivots around this play pattern and The Lego Movie reflects this play pattern with external brands mixed with its own. However, this is a relatively recent evolution in the digital space with Disney Infinity’s Toybox allowing children to play with various Disney IP, Club Penguin integrating characters from Marvel, and Star Wars and Minecraft’s various mods such as Tate World for example. We want the audience to come away with answers to…

3:40pm-4:40pm

The Write Stuff

We often hear from writers about writing, but what do producers think? This panel brings together four producers/script editors to discuss writers and the script process from their side. For writers, it’s a chance to get the inside track on what producers really want… What do producers think the best writers bring to the table? How do they find new writers for their projects? How can your spec script grab their attention? What’s the best way to approach script notes? What makes a good show pitch? For anyone working on the production side, the session will explore what makes a…

5:10pm-6:00pm

Learning by App

Not all games that claim to be educational stand up to scrutiny. 32% of games on the Apple app store have an educational claim or learning goal, but “a great majority… are not very good games and they are not very good at stimulating learning” (Lauri Jarvilehto, Rovio). We hear from app developers, app reviewers and scientists on what makes an app educational and what the market landscape looks like. We explore real life examples and discuss how making a good app, with true educational value, is harder than it might first appear. Plus we get the facts on app…

12:45pm-1:45pm

Converging Careers

Can producers, writers and production staff work across platforms? In fact, nowadays, must they be able to work cross platform in order to have a sustainable career? If so, how can they get the training and experience they need and overcome being pigeonholed in just one area of children’s media and being good at only one thing?

2:10pm-3:10pm

What Are Little Girls Made Of?

Can children’s preschool programmes change cultural attitudes towards women by exposing young boys and girls to gender equality? Has children’s programming fostered unflattering views of women and the disrespectful attitudes it can create in society, as well as how women view themselves? How responsible is the children’s content industry for cementing the attitudes of people and their views towards gender when action toys are described as boy’s toys and the pink aisle is labelled for the girls? Can this paradigm be changed with programming for the post-millennial generation? This session celebrates the successes in fostering new attitudes towards girls, as…

The Great Disruption: Is Children’s TV Going OTT?

How will the new wave of online offerings – from Netflix, YouTube, Hopster and many others – change the UK market over the next five years? Is commercial children’s broadcasting doomed, as children shift online – or will broadcasters adapt? Will the major international children’s channels shift online and go direct-to-consumer? Are the big online players really a great new hope for funding children’s TV content – and what does this mean for producers? Can broadcasters and OTT players work together to grow the market? What will look most different in 2020 – and beyond? We invite a diverse panel…

Producers are a hardy bunch. You have a great idea. It can travel. But how do you get it made? The Celtic Commissioners could hold the key.

Top Tips for Working with Kids

The world of Children’s content is subject to more regulations and policy than any other genre. This year alone has seen a significant update to the Working Regulations for Children in Performance, which was launched in February, as well as new supporting guidance issued by Ofcom in March with regard to the duty of care in the use of children in productions as both performers and contributors. Meanwhile, new EU legislation is looming which will have a profound impact on the way we collect and use Children’s data online. This session will provide knowledge and insight from a range of…

Transmedia Journeys

Taking a transmedia media approach to content is often talked about but means many different things to many different people. Using case studies and expert opinion, the Transmedia Journeys session will shed light on what a real transmedia experience should feel like for the end user and whether this requires an overarching creative approach and set of creative skills or is just about budget and how many platforms you can expand your IP onto. Equally do the different creative starting points of a ‘transmedia journey’ require different strategies requiring you to ‘future-think’ about how your idea will work at all…

Using case studies to illustrate collaborative efforts that have led to entertaining, educational content, the panel will explore the challenges between creative and educational values, as well as the potential benefits that your production can experience.

Changing Channels: Commissioner Conversation with the Publishers

Children’s Publishing still represents one of the main providers of new brands for the international children’s media business. Historically these brands have always been originated by authors or author-illustrators. The market suggests that mediums and platforms are already converging both creatively and commercially. So while the author-creator model will always be central to children’s publishing, how do publishers view other ‘creators’ of content as possible sources of new publishing. Find out why 52 episodes don’t automatically mean 52 books, when a good idea for TV or other media also becomes a good idea for publishing, what a publisher needs to…

Storytelling: The Pre-school Parent Trap

Broadcasters offer preschool programming for children aged 0-6 years, a very wide age span.  Because there’s always the chance that the youngest children in the audience might be watching without an adult, broadcasters tend to favour content that does not contain anything too scary or sophisticated for a 2-3 year old, even if it is intended for an older audience. Where can 4-6 year olds find developmentally appropriate content that will arm them with the cognitive, social and emotional tools they will need for school and beyond? Some UK-funded live-action programming does cater to that older audience, but preschool animation…

Play, Make and Share: Inspiring Creativity

As creativity is increasingly squeezed out of formal education how can children’s media inspire and enable children to express themselves and learn through making and sharing? Kids are claiming back their education.  They’re nurturing their own passions, finding their own spaces, making their own choices, publishing for themselves and looking to their peer groups for recognition.  With all this going on, seemingly unbounded from any formal educational processes, what’s the place for the producers and broadcasters of children’s media within this landscape? To help debate this topic the session brings together a panel of people who are passionately involved in…
