Hear from last year's authors:

Kendra Ruczak, Managing Editor, Sound and Picture

Kendra RuczakWhat goal motivated you to submit a synopsis to IBC?

IBC attracts an audience who is truly interested in the future of broadcast, filmmaking, technology, and content creation. I was motivated to submit a synopsis in order to personally connect my magazine, Sound & Picture, with this diverse, exciting audience and to explore a topic that I believe to be very relevant to our industry.

Tell us how the IBC platform is helping you/your company to achieve this goal

The IBC platform made it easy to connect with a dynamic, engaged audience.

Since IBC, what have you/your company gained from participation at the show?

My magazine has expanded its audience and I have made many new and exciting connections in a variety of fields that I am interested in.

What advice would you give to those thinking of submitting a technical synopsis to IBC?

Select a topic that you find to be very intriguing, and do not miss out on this opportunity!

So Endo, Systems Engineer, NHK

So EndoWhat goal motivated you to submit a synopsis to IBC?

To develop and build on different, and future, ideas from networking with other participants at the show.

Tell us how the IBC platform is helping you/your company to achieve this goal

It gave us the opportunity to publicise our ideas, to generate worthwhile leads and new business opportunities

Since IBC, what have you/your company gained from participation at the show?

Presenting my work at IBC as a Technical Paper Author has opened a lot of doors for me. I am now recognised in my company as a Live Streaming Service specialist which has helped to further grow my network within the industry.

What advice would you give to those thinking of submitting a technical synopsis to IBC?

I think all IBC attendees are there to get the latest technology, cutting-edge idea or upcoming trends. I would keep this in mind and include these elements when submitting your synopsis.

Anna Sowa, Producer, Chouette Films

AnnaSowaWhat goal motivated you to submit a synopsis to IBC?

In the project that I showcased at IBC we utilised the latest technology, that is VR, to preserve an endangered religious ritual. It's a project that merges the world of academia with the creative world and I felt this fitted perfectly with the essence and spirit of IBC which is linking people across sectors and silos.

Tell us how the IBC platform is helping you/your company to achieve this goal

The creative industry, especially that of film, is exceptionally fragmented – but a few large organisations seem to hold all the power in their hands. This creates significant challenges to the ‘micro’ companies with less than 10 employees (CBI, 2014), which make up 85.4% of the sector. For a micro company such as Chouette Films being part of IBC has been a source of great encouragement especially in the age of digital disruption. After all, I presented next to people such as David Puttnam and Peter Jackson!

Since IBC, what have you/your company gained from participation at the show?

Following my presentation at IBC, Nicolas Lodge, the IBC's Consultant Executive Producer, has kindly visited the exhibition of our VR work in a London Gallery. His constrictive criticism and feedback on our work has been absolutely invaluable and will make our future VR projects only better. 

What advice would you give to those thinking of submitting a technical synopsis to IBC?

No matter how small you are, even if you're among the 85.4% of companies in the sector, your work will never be insignificant. Constraint only fuels creativity and you should boldly share your ideas with others in the industry.
