After a brief glut of speaking at events in early October, we’re focusing back on projects for current and new clients. Storythings has just signed up some new clients for short pieces of consultancy, including an event for a major FMCG brand in Geneva, and a London workshop for a global broadcaster. Meanwhile, we’re in early conversations with a major UK broadcaster for a project in 2012 that is, very, very exciting indeed. Getting the balance between short consultancy and bigger ‘making’ projects is important, as you can’t talk about stuff if you’re not doing it as well, but the balance seems to be about right so far.
Storythings is returning to the US in November, first to New York for two days working with a new client on a long-term project, then to Boston to talk at the Futures Of Entertainment conference at MIT, then to Toronto to talk at DocShift. We’re also talking at the Get Together conference, alongside such luminaries as Ben Hammersley from Wired and Tom Uglow from Google Creative Labs. Talking of Wired, we’ve also got an article in the Ideas Bank section of the December Wired UK, about TV and data.
Finally, tickets for The Story in Feb 2012 are selling well. The first two batches of tickets went in 15mins and 5mins, and the current batch of 200 is selling well, so go to our eventbrite site if you want to buy a ticket.
