CMC 2019: Preview – Gambling and Gaming. What’s the Difference? Whats the Harm?

Posted on: Monday 01 July 2019 11:01am by Heather Wardle

Wednesday 3rd July 2019, 14:10 - 15:10 Showroom Cinema 2 This session highlights the human cost of gambling-harms and explores whether the increasing intersection of gambling and gaming is something to be concerned about or is the latest moral panic about children's behaviours online. Gambling with Lives, the charity founded by families bereaved by gambling-related suicide, to raise awareness of the serious health risks of gambling addiction, have spoken about their experiences for the first time in this hard-hitting film, which will be first seen at CMC.  From Pukka Films on Vimeo.

CMC 2019: Preview – Unconscious Bias

Posted on: Sunday 30 June 2019 9:24pm by Kathy Loizou

Thursday 4th July 2019, 11:00 - 12:00 Repeated: 14:00 - 15:00 HUBS Hideout Luise Usiskin will expertly take you on a journey through the thought-provoking subject of Unconscious Bias in a way that’s interesting, useful, fun and not at all intimidating. All of us have learned a variety of stereotypes that are automatic, unintentional, and ingrained. These are able to influence how we behave in our day-to-day lives.  Our everyday environment influences,  and continues to influence, how we’ve become, who we are and how we interact with the world. Unconscious Bias training is about exposing these biases and helping us look at why it is inherent in all of us. The training helps us think about how we can start to recognise…

Posted on: Saturday 29 June 2019 8:09pm by Florencia Donagaray

Monday 1 July, 4-5pm  HUBS The Stage Florencia Donagray, having presented research at CMC previously is producing this year's CMC Volunteer Guidance session. Here she explains who it's for and how it works. Those who have had the chance to attend the CMC might have noticed that apart from the thought-provoking sessions and inspiring panelists there is another signature element that makes the conference unique: the amazing team of hard-working and ever-smiling volunteers. It’s largely thanks to these young people that the CMC runs smoothly - in every session and venue. The volunteers are the driving force during the event – and, because of this, the CMC team works hard to ensure that the volunteers also take something back with…

CMC 2019: Preview – Delivery Demands

Posted on: Saturday 29 June 2019 12:52pm by Dalton Deverell

Wednesday 3rd July 2019, 17:10 - 18:00 Showroom Cinema 2 "Netflix and chill” is at risk of becoming decidedly warm due to a series of delivery demands that has swept through the industry over recent years. We look at the benefits of becoming a superhuman spec’d up studio after navigating the user friendly muli-pagre NP3 questionnaire and what exactly it adds to the production. Of course it’s not just Netflix, every giant has the best way to work with mere mortals and we discuss the implications this can have on budget, scheduling and managing relationships. Hearing from a range of industry experts to give first tale accounts of these demands and the best way to jump through the hoops and…

Thursday 4th July 2019, 12:30 - 13:30 Showroom Cinema 4 Whether you’re a veteran in the industry, just starting out, or somewhere in between, it’s pretty safe to assume that you’re going to want to hear what the commissioners have to say. After all, they are the champions of our content and thus the gateway to our audiences. In an ever-evolving media landscape, we find out what’s new with Sony, Turner and Viacom, what they’re looking for and how best to approach them with your next big idea.

CMC 2019: Preview – Staying Local

Posted on: Saturday 29 June 2019 12:44pm by Jesse Cleverly

Thursday 4th July 2019, 09:30 - 10:30 Showroom Cinema 4 Drama at home.... With the twin arrival of new SVoD players and the new BFI fund, kids drama producers have never had it so good - or so promising. However, figuring out which way to take your pitch to appeal to either domestic players looking for local fayre, or streamers looking for shows that will resonate all around the world  - seems to leave producers with a tricky choice. On the one hand they can develop stories that feel very culturally specific but might not travel, while on the other seem to be the stories that will appeal to kids all over the world but might not really speak sufficiently…

What is that magic dust that makes those broadcasters and partners green light an idea into production?

Joan Lofts shines a light on Peppa’s pitch, Mellie Buse from Adastra, on selling 'Grandpa in My Pocket', Caryl Hart, on pitching her stories and getting them published and Chris Dicker, Jam Media, on the 'Becca Bunch' story.

CMC 2019: Preview – Alexa How should Youth Brands Use Audio in 2019?

Posted on: Saturday 29 June 2019 12:36pm by Sam Harris

Thursday 4th July 2019, 09:30 - 10:30 HUBS Common Room It feels like everyone’s interested in spoken word audio right now – products like podcasts, smart speakers and (increasingly) audiobooks. As the influence and importance of audio grows, media brands are developing new strategies and initiatives to capture the ears of consumers. These strategies are increasingly placing audio at the heart of a brand’s media mix. As such, audio has assumed a new importance in the battle to win the fluttering attention spans of their audiences. Why audio? Audio is part of a seemingly endless, entertaining carousel of new and on-demand content. Young audiences especially flit nimbly between platforms and devices, apps and web pages, in the hunt for the next…

CMC 2019: Preview – Creative Masterclass: Clangers and Paddington

Wednesday 3rd July 2019, 17:00 - 18:00 Showroom Cinema 4 Paddington and Clangers – two icons of Children’s Television - one created 59 years ago and the other 50 years ago, respectively. And, all these years later, they have been revived and re-produced to be, arguably, more successful than they ever were.

CMC 2019: Preview – Don’t mention the C word!

Posted on: Thursday 27 June 2019 9:01pm by Putul Verma

Wednesday 3rd July 2019, 15:40 - 16:40 Showroom Cinema 2 We need to talk about class. Our young audiences from working class backgrounds have a huge amount of choice in what they watch, play, read and listen to.  And if what we make doesn’t speak to them, they will move on.  Box ticking and tokenism, lazy stereotyping,  casual diminishing of the things that are important to them, assumptions about their aspirations and values based on where they live, their education level, their accent and their perceived lack of money – these are just some of the things that turn these young people off content supposedly aimed at them. This session looks at whether getting more people from working class backgrounds…

CMC 2019: Preview – Clicks and Mortar: The New Retail Space

Posted on: Thursday 27 June 2019 7:21pm by Juliet Tzabar

Wednesday 3rd July 2019, 11:10 - 12:10 Showroom Cinema 2 With consumer habits shifting from traditional retail to digital purchasing, and amid ongoing reports of the death of the high street, this session will be looking at the impact that digital disruption has had on the children’s licensing business. Shelf space is increasingly dominated by the big studios, and toy companies are now investing in their own content arms, so the traditional licensing models seem less and less sustainable, particularly for smaller producers who are yet to secure a suite of licensing partners. Yet we know that digital brings with it opportunity, and the demand for licensed product remains strong.  The new players are taking things in-house and exploring the…

Writers Assemble! Wednesday 3rd July 2019, 12:30 - 13:30 Someone with more wisdom than I once said that there are two questions every writer will ask of themselves during their career - “Have I got what it takes?” and “Have I still got what it takes?” For the first time, the Children’s Media Conference is scheduling this session aimed squarely at writers, script editors, show runners and anyone who works (or wants to work) with them. Becoming a writer - and getting paid to do it - is a tough ask. So, what are the ways to break though in an ever-evolving media landscape? And more importantly, once you’ve got that first break, how do you get traction and maintain a…

Thursday 4th July 2019, 11:10 - 12:10 Showroom Cinema 3 When people remember a classic kids’ show that they love, what’s the first thing they often do? Sing the theme tune? Shout out a favourite character’s catchphrase? Getting the music and voice performances right for your audience is a vital part of production– and they can fast become the favourite, most unique ingredients of your show that your viewers love returning to, each and every episode. And in an age when Baby Shark (pictured) can go from meme to commission, it’s even more important to grab your audience’s attention quickly with unforgettable songs and some killer catchphrases from standout characters. So what goes into composing and producing music for Children’s…

CMC 2019: Preview – Animation Skills Fund: Use it or Lose it!

Posted on: Sunday 23 June 2019 12:48pm by Grace Hebditch

Animation Skills Fund – Use it or Lose it! Thursday 4th July 2019, 14:00 - 15:00 The skills shortage is the biggest issue facing animation studios in the UK. The combination of a booming streaming industry with its insatiable appetite for animated content, the welcome tax reliefs and the world-class reputation of the UK animation industry, means the amount of animation work the studios are taking on are outgrowing the talent-base (without even mentioning the ‘B’ word - and all the issues around mobility of labour!). This could drive studios to set up overseas instead, leading to our domestic industry slowly dissolving way. To mitigate this, the ScreenSkills Animation Skills Council are proud to announce that the Animation Skills Fund…

Posted on: Friday 21 June 2019 2:51pm by Rachel Murrell

Wednesday 3rd July 2019, 11:00 - 12:00 Showroom Cinema 4 So you want to work with Netflix? There’s a reason why Wednesday’s panel on Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, Disney+ and AppleTV doesn’t include commissioners from any of them.  The streamers are cash-rich and data-savvy, but famously discreet. So, instead we asked people who understand how they roll and can say what they think. And we have them. Claire Tavernier is a digital and media strategist who helps media companies design their on-demand strategies. Independent producer Billy Macqueen has two Netflix commissions and a seat at the table when Pact talks policy. Samreen Ghani, CFO of Moonbug, supplies Netflix and goes direct-to-consumer on YouTube too. And Richard Cooper studies what the streamers commission, and what this reveals…

And now many of these are out in the market along with large numbers of products that now integrate physical and digital play. Some wow us, while others leave us questioning the need for either the digital or physical part of the experience.

With a title inspired by the 2013 academic study from Pauliina Rautio at the University of Helsinki - the topic of how kids play was repeatedly raised across the research sessions on VR+Kids that storycentral conducted for the Children’s Media Foundation in 2018 and was resonant across the research roadshows in Leeds (Dubit), London (National Theatre)  and Manchester (Immotion VR).
