THE IMAGING DAYS 2016 Day 1 Session took place today OCTOBER 3rd at DE LICHTFABRIEK in HAARLEM HOLLAND. Event Organizer and Spine Jingles Founder ANTHONY TIMMERS opened the day’s proceedings by introducing the first creative session Hosted by DENZIL LACEY IMAGING Producer RTE 2FM – IRELAND with an insight into his promo and creative branding work including making promos and TV Spots for 2FM.
CHRIS STEVENS IGNITE JINGLES hosted the session “Time For Time,” including tips from BBC RADIO 2 UK’s CHRIS REAY via video on managing the production and creative process for a station with over 15.5 million weekly listeners in the U.K. He also shared a new “UBER GRID” that BBC use to manage time and schedule the production process across the network.
“Sometimes it’s worth fighting for the time to make great audio rather than knocking out 50 average sounding promos before lunch,” REAY said, who urged the attendees who came from every continent for the third annual global Imaging event of its kind.
BART VAN GOGH of TOP OF MIND NL showed the audience OLDSKOOL and NEWSKOOL techniques for jingle production spanning from the DUTCH and UK PIRATES to today with “THIS IS HOW WE DID IT AND THIS IS HOW WE DO IT”.
Next up was an interactive IMAGING 1ON1 session designed to make your work better with the help of your favorite Imaging Producer.
THE IMAGING DAYS PANEL was hosted by RYAN DREAN with panel members CHRISTIAN TROITZSCH of 89.0 RTL GERMANY, WHTZ (Z100)/NYC Imaging Dir. STAXX WILLIAMS,and IMAGING BLUEPRINT UK MD ADAM BURGESS. The focus was on “Where to start your campaign” with an example of a “word risky” Promo that aired in THE UK produced by ADAM BURGESS.
Former Z100 Imaging Services Dir. DAVE FOXX hosted the final and main session for Day 1 and urged everyone to brand your work as a producer. “Everything starts with the words on paper,” DAVE said, who shared his own top-secret presets and plugins he used to create his world famous Z100 award-winning sound.
Top imaging company owners, producers, interns, directors voices, jingle composers, writers and people from every area of radio ID and Promo Production from over 20 countries and nearly every continent are attending this event.
