Disneyland® Paris, with its connections to production and animation, offers an excellent venue for this half day media-based conference, designed to provide students aged 16-18 with an insight into such a fascinating and dynamic industry.
Held at the Gaumont Cinema located in the Disney Village, Media Live! brings students together with experts from key areas of the industry such as Film & TV, Journalism and New Media, who through examples of their work highlight the different career routes your students may wish to consider. The Q&A sessions are a great opportunity for students to quiz the speakers on their careers, work and inspiration.
Students will be provided with a workbook prior to the conference which will include a programme of the event as well as background information about the speakers. The workbooks are a great research tool to be used in the classroom prior to travelling to help students to prepare questions for the Q&A sessions at the conference.
In addition, students will be encouraged to submit a short film, following a specific brief, which will be shown at the end of the conference and judged by our panel of experts. A prize will be awarded to the winning entry.
Also held on the same day will be Business Live! ICT Live! and Performing Arts Live! making this the ideal event to bring a mixed group of students from across the curriculum.
