Our panel of Advertising agencies and producers will explore what the future could look like and how our relationships with clients may change. The advertising industry and ad production are an important part of the screen sector and as small scale productions can be a litmus test for our industry at this time. While it was a time of little or no filming, has it been a time of reimagining and creativity? Given the constraints involved in practical filming how are agencies and production companies responding? We will highlight and examine the trends our guests see emerging in the advertising space in New Zealand and internationally at the moment, and how these affect how ads are imagined and produced.
