Designed to give participants the skills and knowledge needed to create, finance and distribute stories across multiple platforms, The Pixel Lab is the ultimate cross-media workshop for European media professionals wanting to capitalise on the value of their intellectual property.
Selecting up to 20 producers with a project and 20 media professionals without, The Pixel Lab kicks off with a six-day immersive residential workshop, in one of the most beautiful venues in South West Germany. Project-focused mentoring is provided by the biggest names in cross-media through a combination of 1-2-1 meetings, case study analysis, group work and presentations.
Participants attending with a project will then go on to receive distance mentoring from July – September with leading practitioners, before heading to London for the final workshop and to pitch their ideas to a jury of international financiers and distributors in an attempt to win The Pixel Lab prize of €3,000!
