I must confess that the RealScreen Summit blows my mind. The groundswell of support that we’re receiving from speakers, sponsors and attendees reaffirms my conviction that sharing and community building are really what make the non-fiction industry tick. If some of that sharing includes tips on how to save or earn more money, all the better!
If you haven’t looked yet at the insert that is accompanying this issue, you must do so when your eyes come off this page. The speaker names read like an all-star list of who’s who in the non-fiction industry, and just when I am sufficiently impressed, I turn to our list of already registered attendees and am really knocked out (available at www.realscreensummit.com).
The list of speakers is too lengthy for me to reiterate here, but I can share the sponsors who have jumped on board early to be part of this event: BBC Worldwide, BBC Library Sales, Cableready, Channel 4 International, Crews Control, Discovery, Footage Bank, KBI, Lehmann Strobel, The History Channel, Panasonic, Reel Cities, SVT and ZDF. We have a number of promotional opportunities remaining; email our sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
New features to watch for this year include our very first inductions into the RealScreen Hall of Fame; our High-Definition Marketplace, in which producers and distributors can catalog their hd programming; our free legal clinic offered by lawyers from Lehmann Strobel; more ’30 Minutes With’ sessions and a round of speed pitching to 15 programming execs.
This combined November/December issue marks the last RealScreen issue of 2003. You can look forward to more great industry news and analysis over the coming year as we keep our eyes on the issues that affect your business. We’ll be exploring topics such as packaging, formats, innovations in technology, the evolving use of stock footage, glimpses into specific territories, advocacy and much, much more. Our regular sections will continue to keep you abreast of changes in programming schedules, program development, profiles of innovative talent and business strategies, funding opportunities, and people and festival chatter.
Both RealScreen magazine and the RealScreen Summit are about you, they’re for you, and we couldn’t do them without your help and support. Thank you. Keep it coming!
