Hi <<First Name>>,

Here's the fantastic panel:
Production companies - looking for more direct to client work? Come and meet Arif Haq, specialist - full bio below.
Emerging directors - you’ve got Head of New Business at ACNE; founder of The Kusp a new gateway for diverse creatives (and content person for a massive consumer brand); and content commissioner for Hospital Records, one of the largest D&B brands in the world.
And for everybody, Panavision, supporter of commercial production talent at all stages and proud sponsor of SHINY.

You can also look forward to seeing the best new work from the most recent entries to SHINY - there's already some great entries in. If you're an emerging director, you've one week left to have your work considered - submit here, deadline Oct 22nd.
If you’re one of the 200+ brands, production companies and agencies receiving the #SHINYlist, you’ll get the mailout with links and contact details for all talent on the list, as selected by the industry jury network, ahead of the event as soon as we've confirmed the screening list.

Come and question the panel about commissioning opportunities in video and stills commissioning - Are briefs changing? Does creative talent need to be even more multi-skilled? Where are the opportunities for emerging directors, in-house at agencies and established production companies?

After the Q&A, in an easy, laid-back way. Drinks and pizza provided.

Looking forward to seeing you if you come!
very best
