South West Screen Conference: Film, The Digital Future

Like a lot of you out in www.land, I believe that being "up to date" with the changing face of film production will ensure my writing has more opportunities to "get out there": in addition, the idea of making a film myself is really growing on me and is certainly on my "To Do" list in the future and digital production is becoming a much more accessible way of making films.

That's why I'll be at this conference held by SW Screen at Watershed, Bristol, in just under two weeks. They have an impressive array of guest speakers including the UK Film Council and Hammer Films and a comprehensive look at how us writers can really turn this technological change to our advantage. I know very little about digital production, let alone digital distribution, the territories involved or the impact of piracy, so I will be all-ears.

I'll be writing a detailed account of the conference for this blog for those of you who can't make it, but if you can, I'll see you there! Email me...

Can only those who live in the SW go to this? What about Londoners like me?

I fancy this too. Funnily enough, I was just looking at an IPTV conference in London at a whacking £545! The Bristol conference sounds good value.
