Multiplatform Content Producing

The multiplication of broadcast platforms (TV-online-podcast) has led to the creation of Quebec-based projects, with single content adapted to multiple modes of consumption, like Picbois Productions’ Trafic and Kngfu’s Bow’t Trail. But repackaging single content for multiple platforms isn’t so simple. Adaptations, resale rights, contract regulations create barriers and complications. As well, financing models and marketing strategies are as varied as they are unique. This group discussion led by industry experts dives into these questions to identify current problems, look for solutions and share better practices.

An activity in three parts:
2:00 to 2:30 pm: Trafic case study presented in collaboration with the ACCT
2:30 to 3:00 pm: Bow't Trail case study
3:00 to 4:30 pm: Group discussions on multiplatform content in three sections:

- Rules and regulations
- Financing models and marketing strategies
- Conclusions
