Spotlight on the Creative Crafts at The Media Production Show

Publish date:

LONDON: May 12th 2016:The Media Production Show (MPS), the UK’s only exhibition and conference bringing TV, film and commercials together across pre-production, production and post, today shared their exhibitor line-up focussed on the creative craft companies who will be exhibiting and launching new products at MPS on 9th-10th June 2016.  

The MPS brings a unique opportunity for craft focussed companies to shine a light on the creative and talented teams within their businesses who bring extraordinary skills and vision to the production process.   A range of specialists in the creative craft companies will be exhibiting including Artem Special Effects, aerial camera specialists Flying TV and 3D scenery specialists and prop designers Footprint.

The inaugural event, to be held at The Business Design Centre in Islington, London, brings together an opportunity for technology and craft companies to sit side by side to demonstrate new productions and services for the UK’s creative industries.

“We knew there was a significant gap in the market for a UK based event which bought together suppliers from across the production and post production space,” commented Charlotte Wheeler, Event Director, MBI. “Production companies and the teams within them need a place to come where they can learn about new technology and also be inspired by the creativity that studios such as Pinewood, AED and Cinecittà Studios can offer together with the artisan nature of the skills found at companies such as Artem, SoundArt and Footprint “

Highlights from the creative craft exhibitors at the show include:
