The internationally acclaimed X Media Lab is launching a brand new ‘Creative Masterclass Series’ during the Festival, and will be hosting speakers who drive some of the world’s very best known multimedia brands.
The day-long event will feature four different masterclasses:
Immersive and Augmented Realities
4-time Emmy award winner, CBS Sports Winter Olympics Creative Director and interactive tv pioneer Dale Herigstad, and ex-BBC mobile manager turned digital entrepreneur Jason DaPonte will be presenting a masterclass on ‘Immersive and Augmented Realities’.
Vesna Petresin Robert and Laurent-Paul Robert of Rubedo Studio, best known for their work on the visual effects for many box office hits including Batman, Inception, Skyfall and Harry Potter will deliver this masterclass.
Channel 4’s multiplatform director Hilary Perkins, responsible for the platforms for Skins, Misfits, Hollyoaks and Shameless, will be joined by Emmy award winner Kirsty Hunter who has delivered projects for broadcasters including the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, PBS, UKTV and Five, to present a masterclass on ‘Transmedia’.
Protecting your IP in the Creative Industries
This essential masterclass is to be delivered by New York gurus ‘Fried Frank’, who specialise in structuring and negotiating complex domestic and cross-border IP and IT transactions and advise on IP, technology and commercial issues for Fortune 50 companies.
Speaking about the new masterclass format, X Media Lab founder Megan Elliott said: “This brand new X Media Lab Creative Masterclass format is a diversion from our usual digital conference events, and allows an intimate environment in which event delegates can really gain an understanding of the masterclass subjects from our fantastic mentors.”
Space for the masterclasses is limited and demand is expected to be high so please book early to avoid disappointment.
