And Belfast Times will be there on the journey in one of the branded SUV’s with the content creators bringing you live images on snapchat, instagram, twitter and facebook. Make sure you’re following us on the journey on Wednesday 24th May!
Thursday 25th will see a series of hands-on Masterclasses taking place in the intimate, Baltic Bar at Bullitt Hotel. Guests will get up-close-and-personal through expert talks from world-renowned filmmakers Philip Bloom and Devin Super Tramp, who will offer expertise on brand creativity and making the most from video content. Other experts include video pro Peter McKinnon, offering skilled advice on ways to step up filmmaking, and Facebook video expert Peter McNicholl who will showcase how local businesses can best utilise the Facebook video tool to grow and develop their brand.
In addition to this year’s day-long conference in Belfast Cathedral, hosted again by David Meade, guests can also take advantage of a larger carnival atmosphere including interactive exhibitions, meet-and-greets, a street food festival beside the Cathedral, and other satellite events across Belfast including Northern Ireland’s first international professional Drone Race held in T13 in Titanic Quarter.
“We are so excited for the upcoming Power of Video Event, and are so pleased with the high calibre of speakers who have agreed to visit Northern Ireland and speak about their own passions for video and filmmaking,” said Billy May, Organiser, Power of Video. “Last year’s conference, highlighted by a talk from YouTuber of the Year Casey Neistat, Ireland’s own Cian Twomey and hosted by David Meade among other guests, acted as a springboard for an incredibly strong platform as we continue to advocate for the power of video content, whether this is used for brand promotion or as a means to communicate personal messages between individuals.”
