Location:Sedulo Group Limited, Manchester
Maker’s A to Z of Commissioning Award-winning Video Content at Sedulo Group Limited, Manchester, United Kingdom on Tue 19th Mar at 16:00.

A productive, interactive and fun session hosted by Thea Burrows (MD) and Luke Toyne (Executive Producer) from Maker- Bronze winners at last year’s Cannes and Clio awards.

The session will cover the dos and don'ts of turning your video briefs into brilliant films with tangible results and help remove the uncertainty when commissioning film content.

Thea and Luke will kick off the session sharing what they’ve learned about how to ensure a smooth production process and make video content that has real impact, including:

- When the right time to use video is
- The different kinds of video and matching these to your objectives
- Setting a strong brief
- Getting more bang for your buck
- How to make your video content cinematic to help it stand out

Maker will be joined by three esteemed panellists to delve even further with expert input about commissioning and production followed by a Q & A and a drink or two.

The Panel

- Laura Thomas - Head of Paid Social at MediaCom North
- Neil Williams - Head of Film at Havas Lynx
- Michael Lewin - Senior Commissioner at NOWNESS

This is a must-attend for any agency decision makers, business owners and brand marketing teams involved in commissioning video. It will be particularly helpful if you’re fairly new to commissioning video; you’re not getting the results you need from your campaigns; or you’re on the lookout for some fresh tips and inspiration to help make your brand films fly.

Drinks and snacks will be provided and all proceeds from ticket sales go to the Wood Street Mission.
