Session

The Danger Zone

Tuesday, January 24, 2017
12:15 PM - 1:15 PM
SALON IJK


Factual television has historically provided audiences with incredible access to situations and locations far outside of the realm of the network's demographic. In an effort to cut through the clutter, producers and networks are consistently trying to boldly go where no crew has gone before, and tell stories previously untold. Combine the inherent unpredictability of that process with the increasing geopolitical instability of current times, and far-flung shoots in volatile locales are an even riskier venture. Hear from producers and network executives about the riskiest projects they've undertaken, and get tips on how to emerge from such productions unscathed (and maybe, with a hit).
