Award Ceremony 2019 Panel Discussion: Is advertising enough?

Tickets are now available for the Young Director Award Ceremony and panel discussion.

As part of the YDA offering for 2019, not only do we have a seminar talk from Thomas Kolster but, as has been tradition for the last few years, we also have a panel discussion which, this year, asks;

Is advertising enough? Can the commercial filmmaking industry still compete effectively for the best new directorial talent?

The panel will be comprised of Mindy Goldberg, Founder of Epoch Films; Marie Ronn, Group Creative Director at Spotify; Alma Har’el director and Co-Founder of Free the Bid, and Jared Shulman, CEO at Brand New Story, and will be chaired by shots’ Co-Editor, Danny Edwards.

The panel will be looking at how advertising has adapted to the changing landscapes of film-based production, whether clients, agencies and production companies are capitalising on the demand for longer form content and if the advertising industry will be as attractive to the cream of new directorial talent in the coming years as it has been in the past.

More details to come..
