Keynote speakers for Showcomotion Children?s Media Conference announced

Richard Deverell, BBC Children?s Controller, and Tess Alps, Thinkbox CEO, will launch the Showcomotion Children?s Media Conference (July 7-8) with keynote presentations on the children?s media environment.

The 2006 conference theme is ?The New Gatekeepers?. The two-day event will be looking at changing relationships as television broadcasters and television commissioners adjust to their role as just one component in a multiplicity of content outlets. How will changing business models impact upon creativty, content and the eventual quality of the product that young people will see on their screens?
The Showcomotion Children?s Media Conference is the premier conference in the UK dedicated to children?s television, film, radio and interactive media. It?s the only time in the UK when independent producers, broadcasters, film makers, commissioners and freelancers can get together for a full two days of discussions, workshops and intensive sessions which focus on all the new and future developments in children?s media.
