Hilary Perkins (UK)

portrait of Hilary Perkins

Hilary has been commissioning, producing, and directing content for media organisations since 2001. Much of her work has involved bringing digital and traditional media professionals together to deliver sites, apps, games, and experiences. Most recently she was a Multiplatform Commissioning Editor at Channel 4, delivering large-scale digital work for flagship programmes like SkinsMisfits and Utopia, and ran a development slate for new cross-platform drama projects. She’s also been an editor of Film4.com, managing the digital teams behind Channel 4 News and Factual sites, and Film4’s first multiplatform commission, Dreams of Your Life. Before that she ran digital teams and social action projects at BBC Radio 1, and led the digital team at BBC 1Xtra.

How Multiplatform Commissioning Is Changing Culture in TV

Broadcasters have been telling us stories since they first took to the airwaves. In this talk I’ll explore how our experiences of multiplatform commissioning have altered the way audiences consume and behave around the stories we tell, and what that means for content creators and distributors. You’ll learn:

  • How cultural change amongst audiences has changed their media consumption patterns.
  • What’s challenging about commissioning digital projects within a broadcast environment.
  • How structuring a project can influence change within production and commissioning teams.
