MIPTV 2013

For the third year running, THE SWARM has worked on curating and hosting the programme for MIPTV – including MIPDoc and MIPCube – the world’s leading TV industry event.

Topics for sessions curated included:

MIPDoc: New Takes on Factual Content – Featuring VICE TV (DE), Show of Force (US) and Spring Films (UK) this panel discussed how they’re breaking away from traditional business models in broadcasting and embracing digital to do new exciting factual content.

MIPDoc: Foundation Case Study: Ford Foundation – A first for MIPDoc, the Ford Foundation’s Orlando Bagwell discussed the Just Films initiative and gave advice about how to work with foundations for funding. See the blog post here.

MIPCube: From Producer to Start-up – The most exciting thing about new technology is the new forms of storytelling it makes possible. Here, a few major producers discussed how they went from big-screen to split-screen, what the benefits are, and what skills to leverage.

MIPCube: Getting Creative With Code – How can you harness the power of coding for your creative project? In this session, producers (including THE SWARM) and developers described the advantages of a closer connection between coders and creatives. You can see this at the bottom of the page.

THE SWARM were also featured in the “Meet The Digital Producers” match-making session where we were featured alongside other leading digital producers from around the world. If you’re interested in working with us, get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
