Media Magazine Conference 2015

On Tuesday 16 December, once again we'll be holding the Media Magazine student conference at Logan Hall in London. We are expecting a full house for the event, with over 900 teachers and students attending. Our speakers are Channel 4 newsreader and reporter Jon Snow, film-maker Destiny Ekaragha, music video director Jake Wynne and writer Owen Jones.

Jon Snow has had a colourful career, fearless about going against the dominant view in order to speak up for the oppressed. His wikipedia entry is here. You can follow him on twitter @jonsnowC4


Destiny Ekaragha's first feature film, Gone Too Far, was released in cinemas in October. It offers a refreshingly different portrayal of young black people in London- no guns or knives, lots of laughs! Destiny's other work can be seen here and you can follow her on twitter @Destinyfilms.
Jake Wynne started editing music videos in the mid 1990s with work for The Spice Girls and Robbie Williams. He formed a directing duo with Jim Canty and went on to make videos for a wide range of artists including Paul Weller and Super Furry Animals. Jake's website is here and you can follow him on twitter here: @JakeWynneHD
Owen Jones is an activist and writer who has appeared on Newsnight and BBC Question Time and writes regularly for The Guardian. His first book was Chavs: the demonisation of the working class and this year he published The Establishment and How They Get Away With It. Owen's wikipedia entry is here and you can follow him on twitter here: OwenJones84

I will be speaking about production work and we'll be announcing details of the 2015 MediaMagazine competitions- one for video and one for writing. I'll also be previewing a new FREE online film course from the BFI and NFTS which starts in February and which you can sign up for here
