15:30 - 16:10 Looking to the future – the technology and workflows changing the way we work

Making use of the cloud, virtual production and remote directing provide new opportunities to streamline workflows and reduce travel, costs and your carbon footprint. But how does it work in practice and how does it compare to more traditional forms of filming.

16:55 - 17:05 Reflections and Round Up

Individual productions are working hard but you’re not alone. From infrastructure projects to studio standards and climate content pledges to research. We finish the formal part of the day with a brief round-up of what else is happening around the industry and some reflections of the day.
