This latest edition of the Forum Blanc has once again proved to be a great success with more than 170 participants of which 45% were present for the first time, which shows the extent of the continuing interest for this event.
Over a period of two and a half days with 8 case studies, 7 plenary sessions, a keynote speech, a panel discussion and the P’tits dej Network sessions, we were able to review the current state of transmedia.
The Forum Blanc provides a golden opportunity to deliberate on profound changes to content and uses in different formats and sectors in the moving image industry. It's an extraordinary moment where professionals share their experiences and build on their paths to innovation.
Come and take part in these meetings, do some networking, compare your projects and discover the most remarkable transmedia products from 13th to 15th January 2016 at the Grand-Bornand.
This year, the issues most touched upon during the Forum Blanc included new writings, virtual reality, binaural sound and the challenges of the transmedia of tomorrow.
Webcreation and Transmedia Manager, Technical Project Manager, Programme Manager, Professor, Researcher, Head of Web Productions and Transmedia Projects, Producer etc. All the leaders in their fields were present to discuss current transmedia topics.
During this edition, a new session format was launched: the P’tits dej Network. These privileged exchanges enabled project leaders to meet the decision-makers. In a convivial meeting over breakfast, these exchanges provided the perfect opportunity for project creators to meet with broadcasters, funders and financial partners and benefit from their advice and experience.
After two and a half days of discussions and debates, the Forum Blanc came to a conclusion: that despite large funding shifts, it is crucial to set up new economic models to provide a comprehensive equation to enable the media revolution to really take off. All this keeping in mind that technological evolutions and new consumer fashions are pushing changes in the media and exposing other diverse challenges.
See you at next year’s Forum Blanc, from 10th to 12th January 2017, to follow the progress of this new media revolution.
