Posted on: Saturday 16 March 2019 11:58pm by Simon Bor

Moderator Mara Alperin (Wonderbly) Speakers Sam Clough (SuperAwesome) Jelena Stosic (Kids Industries) Duncan Shearer (Seymour Distribution) Nick Richardson (The Insights People)   Takeaways Kids have a sense of regret that what we have now will go, but they see the future as bright. How many words are needed before a game becomes worthy? The magazine industry is worth £1 billion, despite the digital age.   Mara Alperin of Wonderbly introduced the first session of  CMC @LBF 2019 and wanted to know if today’s children saw the future as bright. Sam Clough of SuperAwesome talked about research on the future of shopping with ten to seventeen-year-olds. One view from a twelve-year-old saw a world with no shops, just one app, maybe Amazon.

An opportunity up for grabs?

Posted on: Tuesday 26 June 2012 9:29pm

#TCMC Ricard Gras is the session producer for SECOND SCREEN, 2-3pm Thursday July 5 in Cinema 2. He's asking, why is there so little Second Screen content for kids? It really feels great to be involved with Sheffield’s CMC for a third year, this time as producer of another content-meets-technology-session. And there’s good reason for such joyfulness. Firstly, as ever, it’s great to be part of an event that has such a uniquely committed, consistent and generous focus on children’s media, in its widest possible sense. And lastly – because of the overwhelming feeling I get whenever I look back into how far this event has come. The session I’ve worked on this year will attempt to dissect a new…

Can comics deliver literacy?

Posted on: Monday 25 June 2012 10:14pm

Reading Between The Panels: Thursday July 5th, 5-6pm in Hubs C Paul Gravett, co-director of London's Comica Festival, presents an opportunity to discover the latest thinking and trends in the comics medium and its multiple applications. Comics are a prime source material and language behind many of today's most successful movies, games and TV shows. But what is the verdict on whether comics can improve children's reading? Is it all hot air or can graphic novels and manga really stimulate even the most reluctant young readers? And how effective are they not only for verbal literacy, but visual and critical literacy? Hunt Emerson and Jim Medway, top cartoonists from The Beano and The Phoenix, and Mel Gibson and Russell Wall,…

Publishing Faces The Future

Posted on: Monday 25 June 2012 8:55pm

Publishing Faces The Future The publishing industry is undergoing a seismic shift as its traditional tectonic plates of acquisition and distribution rearrange to face a digital future. Jeff Norton, author and producer, explores this new future at the Meet the Commissioners (Publishing) event on Friday July 6th in Cinema 4 at 9.30am. After the music business, fiction publishing is the next media business to be digitally disrupted, albeit in the post-Napster age. Piracy, while always a looming threat, is not the industry-busting reality in the book world that upended music. Readers generally don’t mind paying for books, though there is certainly a strong downward pressure on prices driven by aggressive retailing and the rise of cheap/free self-published novels. The paths…
