Off to mentor at The Pixel Lab

I’m flying to the UK today to mentor at The Pixel Lab: The Cross-Media Film Workshop:

The lab is aimed at European media professionals with a strong track record in their sector, and has a particular focus on the creation, finance and distribution of cross-media properties to create sustainable European media businesses. The Pixel Lab will enable producers and other media professionals to tap into the business knowledge-base of the film, advertising, online, broadcast, gaming and mobile industries.

There are two labs, and I’ll be mentoring at both the Welsh Mini-Lab and the full Pixel Lab. I’ll be with a great bunch of mentors:

We’ll be working with an awesome bunch of practitioners who will also be mentoring each other and sharing with us!
