WHAT IS IT ABOUT?: Dan Higginson from Clockwise Media will be talking about how he went out on his own, set up an independent media production company and now delivers sharp, entertaining and visually-inspiring online video content to a range of international clients.
WHO IS THIS FOR?: Aspiring documentary-makers, videographers, music videos directors and film types who want to meet an industry professional, get real-life advice, network with other like-minded souls and get a foot in the door.
WHO IS DOING THE TALK?: Dan finished studying media at UWE in 2006 and after a couple of years head scratching and odd jobs in the industry he decided to start his own production company. The obvious thing would have been to join forces with some fellow media heads however he found two mates who had no media experience but loads of enthusiasm and started making films. Seven years later and Clockwise Media is going from strength to strength. Clockwise Media makes films with a clear message and creative touch. From branded content and event coverage, to TV-ready documentary productions, we work with international brands, media outlets and music icons to produce inspiring films that speak in the voice of our clients.
