Northern Ireland Creative Digital Talent Takes To Hollywood

Crea8ivity.com, the DETI backed awareness campaign aimed at promoting Northern Ireland as a creative digital hub was recently in Hollywood for the USA’s premier entertainment and technology conference, Digital Hollywood.
Jeff Peel who is responsible for international media relations for crea8ivity.com will be representing Northern Ireland’s creative-digital talent and speaking at the conference about the implications to the marketers and businesses of the multi-platform availability of video content.
Peel said: “When it comes to combining creative entertainment and digital technology, you don’t get any bigger or better than the Hollywood movie industry. It’s a fantastic opportunity to get up close and personal with the key players at the leading edge of this multi-billion dollar industry and for Northern Ireland’s talent to be featured at an industry event of this stature. I’ll be making contacts on behalf of our business community here and ensuring that I maximise our ability to forge relationships with key buyers and influencers in the field of digital film & TV production.”
He will also be broadcasting the crea8ivity.com video showreel at Digital Hollywood which showcases Northern Ireland’s creative digital talent including six exemplar companies funded by DETI to demonstrate the vast and emerging commercial opportunities of broadband for business.
The first project, constantcomedy.com, a 24hr interactive comedy show launched in August and the second, an online, interactive painting tuition site from County Tyrone artist Dermot Cavanagh is due to launch very soon.
Whilst in Hollywood, Peel will also be attending the inaugural breakfast of the National Academy of Media Arts & Sciences – a spin out of the National Academy responsible for the Emmy Awards and will be reporting back to the crea8ivity.com blog community on the latest news and opportunities emerging from Digital Hollywood around a range of issues such as advertising; user generated media; social networks, digital product and onDemand content and technology.
