Hi <<First Name>>


Don't forget it's SHINY tomorrow night!

  • SHINY Showcase: There's some real zingers in tomorrow evening's screening, two of them from students/ brand new graduates. 13 directors show work - and co-incidentally fittingly for the time of year, it's all a bit dark...
    If you’re one of the 200+ brands, production companies and agencies receiving the #SHINYlist, you’ll get the mailout later today with links and contact details for all talent on the list, as selected by the industry jury network.
  • Panel Q&A: If you're a production company looking for more direct to client work, you must meet expert consultant Arif Haq - this is your chance to find out more. Emerging directors, meet commissioners & services to help you on your way, from ACNE, The Kusp, Hospital Records, a massive consumer brand and from Panavision. We'll be looking at career opportunities in video & stills commissioning.
  • Networking: Drinks and pizza provided by Spring Studios until 9.30pm

Doors open: 7pm

Media Trust Volunteer Films
Media Trust are looking for 20 filmmakers or production companies to each create a £1,500 3-minute film for a London-based charity, for their new series of Media Trust #VolunteerFilms.

Many directors see this as an opportunity to flex their creative talents in a supported framework with a hands-off exec, and in a sector which is desperate for its stories to be communicated. Some choose to realise the charities brief/aims in an extremely creative way as David Amanor-Wilks has here:

SHINY at Spring.
Proudly sponsored by Panavision

SHINY connects emerging, diverse directors with the commercial production industry, via awards, events and development support. Our mission is to discover talented new directors, and in particular to support under-represented and diverse film-makers.


Every video entered into the Awards gets professional reviews from world-class industry VIPs in our jury network. This enables us to curate the #SHINYlist - the best rising, diverse director talent, as judged by that network. The list is then shared with over 200 brand, agency & production company partners, to fuel connections for directors and for companies interested in accessing fresh new talent.


SHINY runs regular events in London, Los Angeles & New York to illuminate the processes of career development for film-makers with showcases, panel discussions, Q+As and networking. We arrange sponsorships to allow hard-to-reach emerging talent to participate in SHINY for free.


SHINY is a chance for emerging directors & companies searching for fresh director talent to interact face to face and promote the best new work.
No appointment necessary. No nepotism at play.
