Video content is integrated into culture, with one-third of online activity spent watching the moving image. Responding to this demand, The Video Show debuts this March at the NEC, Birmingham. Taking place alongside The Photography Show, the event welcomes aspiring documentary makers, videographers and commercial film professionals. Recognising a shift in the way we produce and consume content, event manager Ruth Folkard, notes: “Interest in video-making has boomed through the growth of vlogging and platforms such as YouTube.”
Championing both established and emerging filmmakers across a range of disciplines, The Video Show offers industry insights from a diverse selection of speakers. 2019’s line-up includes director-cinematographer Daniel Peters, who explores location sourcing, lighting, grading and equipment choice for short films; award-winning adventure documentarian Ivo Marloh and Panasonic’s Rupert Cobb, who discusses the intricacies of creating a music video.
Other highlights include sessions focusing on storytelling, post-production, aerial technology and social media optimisation. A student programme – alongside a tailored selection of beginners’ masterclasses – looks to the next generation of filmmaking talent, whilst professionals are encouraged to develop their skills through in-depth talks. In this way, a range of audiences are encouraged to hone their techniques.
Featuring leading brands such as Panasonic, Sony and Fujinon, the event presents the latest technology releases – new gadget, software and accessories are available to try out and buy.
The Video Show runs 16-19 March. Find out more here.
