29, 30, 31 October - Screenworks is holding MediaLab, an
intensive three-day workshop presented by Marcus
Gillezeau focusing on how to deliver a project idea, with
its many facets, on multiple platforms. The workshop will focus on how to deliver a project idea, how to
plan and cost delivering interviews for television as well as 'the
making of' DVD, and background research. It will explore how to
deliver contextual material online. It will cover how to market your
DVD and stock footage. Also how to negotiate with buyers - who
pays for what, who maintains the rights.
This will be a
hands-on workshop, utilising case studies, existing works, exploring
how to deliver projects for a multi-platform environment, and the
resource and cost differential.
The workshop will
call on the expertise of FAT COW MOTEL and will incorporate a video
conference with Picture Projects, a US-based company which has the
international edge on multi-platform delivery and marketing
