BBC Multiplatform is coming to the South West in November - and they're giving local TV and digital media companies the chance to put your ideas to them. Fresh from signing the first ever city partnership with Bristol, the BBC is now seeking new talent from the South West region to bring science to life for a multiplatform audience.
South West Screen and the BBC will be hosting an intimate workshop with a small number of digital and TV companies aiming to explore potential partnerships and projects. This will be a one-day event held on Tuesday 24 November at Arnolfini, Bristol. Lisa Sargood, Multiplatform Commissioning Executive for Science & Natural History for BBC, will invite up to 10 TV businesses and 10 digital agencies to the seminar in which she will explain the BBCs future multiplatform/digital strategy and highlight the opportunities it presents. She will also outline current significant projects and provide a commissioner brief on any science or factual gaps they have. To see if you might be eligible to attend, take a look at the criteria the BBC is looking for and see if you fit the bill. Then send an Expresssion of Interest, explaining in up to 250 words why you would like to be there. Expressions of interest should be e-mailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org by 9am on Monday November 9th.
