The Renaissance Of Storytelling - The APA at Adweek Europe

We are part of Adweek Europe next week and hope you will be too, as there are opportunities to learn, it's on our doorstep and it is the most important advertising event, in terms of the whole ad industry and the breadth and quality of speakers and it is important that commercials production is at the heart of that.

Details of our session, in which we focus on how, in a world of conferences about the potential of new tech, the ability of an advertiser to create an emotional connection with a consumer is still key. We also have a few free passes for our session which is taking place on Thursday 26th March at 12pm at #AWEurope Underground. 

Please let us know if you would like one by via email info@a-p-a.net.

Beak Street Bugle celebrates 60 years of TV advertising with HAT

Our online magazine and email newsletter, The Beak Street Bugle www.beakstreetbugle.com, celebrates 60 years of TV commercials in the UK in partnership with the History of Advertising Trust- HAT.

HAT is a wonderful archive of advertising, including TV, that seeks to preserve and provide access to advertising’s history, to enhance its future.

The Beak Street Bugle has commissioned HAT to bring their collection alive through ten items from the HAT collection.

The first article to appear on the BSB focusses on what the advertising industry predicted that TV advertising would do for advertisers, when it started in 1955. Inevitably, most of the predictions about it were way of the mark and provide entertaining reading.

Private view of the photos for the APA Collection Shots feature

Every year photographer Julian Hanford, Shots and ourselves create a photo feature for the Shots issue which contains the DVD of the APA Collection. Julian’s superb photos focussed  on directors (2011), editors in a Georgian House (2012), the APA Council as football stickers (2013) and music and sound companies as record covers (2014).

Many thanks to The Mill for hosting the exhibition and private view in their new office. See photos here LINK.

Masterclass 2015 is underway

The APA Masterclass was set up in 2001 to provide training for staff of APA member. 2015 is the fourteenth of the Masterclass, meaning over 960 students will have undertaken it by the time this course is concluded. This year we have record 120 students attending the course.

Practical experience will always be the key to producer’s training and the Masterclass compliments that, rather than replaces it. It gives students the chance to learn from top practitioners and to get a perspective on the whole process of creating a commercial, from its genesis at the agency to completion of the final version for play out at the post production company.

The Budgeting all day session compliment the lectures, by giving you the opportunity to get involved in budgeting and other disciplines yourselves.

The exam then asks the students key production questions and asks them to go through a script and explain how would they produce and budget it.
