O ctober heralds the second tour
of 2013 for BroadcastShow.
The travelling road show of
exhibiting manufacturers and seminars
visited London, Glasgow, Manchester,
Cardiff and Bristol earlier this year with
well over 1000 visitors through the
doors. For the autumn leg the first stop
will be the Europa Hotel in Belfast on
16 th October followed by the Royal
Armouries in Leeds on the 22nd and
finishing up at Pinewood Studios on the
24 th October.
The approach is simple – to give visitors
a unique chance to spend time with
manufacturers and distributors, to
discuss their needs and get hands on
with everything on offer in a friendly laid
back environment. The day is backed
up by unique seminars and for October
Philip Bloom will be at every venue with
talks throughout the day.
16th Oct - 24th Oct 2013
If you’ve not met or come across
Philip in the past then he is a world-
renowned filmmaker who, for the
past 7 years of his 24-year career has
specialised in creating incredible film-
like images with low budget video.
His most iconic work is created with
Canon DSLRs. As one of the biggest
evangelists for their use in productions
his website became the place to go
to for budding filmmakers as well as
experienced ones keen to embrace
the new technology. His site now
regularly has over 1,000,000 visitors a
month. His use of Canon DSLRs to shoot part
of Lucasfilms’ last movie “Red Tails”
proved a huge point to the naysayers.
This technology was proved very
viable in large-scale productions.
Philip has kept up with the advent
of newer tools like the C300, F3,
FS700, Blackmagic Cinema Camera
and 1DC, using them in various
productions and undertaking in depth
video reviews, which have helped
many people in the huge decision of
buying a camera.
He has worked for all the major UK
broadcasters, such as the BBC, ITV,
C4 and Sky, as well as many others
around the world including CBS,
Discovery, FOX and NBC.
Independent projects are key to Philip
and he mostly works in this field now.
One of his most successful projects
was “How To Start A Revolution”
which won a BAFTA in 2012 and was
also awarded prizes at several film
festivals including Best Documentary
at the 2011 Raindance festival.

Currently Philip is working on various
documentary and fiction projects and
much more besides. He is constantly
stretching his creative abilities whilst still
taking time to keep his website relevant
and touring the world teaching young
and old filmmakers better techniques.
Not just through technology but
through better storytelling skills. His
workshops have been an enormous
success around the world and he will
continue to run them for as long as
possible as learning never stops!
Morning Session starting at 11am
Technology update: Why shoot 4K? Why Shoot
Raw? How can the new technology help you and
what will hinder you?
We’re in a rapid evolution of
technologies and despite what some
manufacturers say you may not
want to be complicating the task
with unnecessary tech. Distilling the
equipment and tools to the essentials
plus what to avoid, what to invest in
now and what to wait for…
Afternoon Session starting at 2pm
Narrative and Visual Storytelling in the real word.
As much as many of us wish we
were shooting Hollywood features or
high end dramas, the reality is quite
different. Philip will be divulging his
wealth of experience in how to keep
the passion alive doing jobs that don’t
necessarily excite you. Tips on how
to tell the story (corporate, wedding,
film, doc) whilst also keeping yourself
motivated and inspired. An essential
talk for anyone from people starting
in the business through to people of
many decades experience.
