Major networks are reacting more boldly to changes in consumer video viewing behaviour, exploring different short-form content creation options, experimenting with social media models outside of the traditional distribution environment and shifting the focus of in-house creative teams. As the digital migration continues, promo creators have had to reinvent how they think in order to step up to and deliver on new demands. This panel looks at the dramatic changes required by the new environment, how media brands are managing the shift and what’s on their wish lists for 2019.
