I wanted to highlight some of the events we have been doing over the past two years or so in conjunction with Channel 5’s Head of Development, Beren Money.
Taking in two great locations, The Hospital Club in Covent Garden and On The 7th at MediaCityUK in Salford, we have been able to reach out to our members and get them in the same room, over a drink, with some of the industry’s movers and shakers.
To date, we’ve had a brilliant, diverse selection of speakers – from producers, directors, writers and talent to technical geniuses who are changing the whole landscape of the medium.
Thanks to everyone that joined us for our inaugural Turn On Tune In North event at MediaCityUK in Manchester last week! We had a great turnout at the prestigious OnThe7th members bar to hear from our top industry speakers.
First up, Tom O’Brien, the Co-Creator and Producer of TwoFour’s The Magaluf Weekender, gave us an insight into the world of structured reality programming; how and when the Producers should intervene to change the direction of a show, how far they should let the on-screen participants go when things get out of hand, and ultimately concluding that what happens organically is often better than anything that could be constructed by the programme makers.
