Highlights of the Rising Stars 2015 programme include:
VICE News the ‘News in a Flash’ Session
News delivery and consumption is changing dramatically and companies that redefine news as we know it will talk about how they experiment and innovate to create and deliver content that attracts audiences, enhances user experience and increases engagement. From VICE - the largest youth media company in the world - Head of Content and Creative Director of VICE Media Benelux, Perre van den Brink, will lead the discussion.
Craft Skills Masterclass with Scot Barbour
From concept to camera, light to lens, and stream to screen, delegates have the chance to learn from award-winning filmmaker Scot Barbour some of the vast array of methods, mediums and invaluable milestones that comprise the storytelling journey towards what he likes to call ‘the heart of hell.’
