To wrap up the day, Manimation participants meet Salford Media Festival Next Generation delegates at a special event.
Introduced by Greg Childs, Co-Creator and Editorial Director of The Children's Media Conference, and chaired by Beth Hewitt, Director of Conversion for the School of Arts and Media at the University of Salford.
Josh Weinstein, (The Simpsons and Head Writer on CCBC’s Strange Hill High) is in conversation with Phil Chalk (Factory Transmedia – animation producers) and Andrew Burrell (CBBC). The trio discuss working in an international team, their innovative production techniques, and why Manchester was the only place Strange Hill High could have happened. As Josh says: “The creative environment that a city like Manchester encourages, coupled with the incredible talent, enthusiasm and humour of the people who live and work there, make it one of my favorite cities in the world.”
