The BBC’s Make it Digital Campaign is inspiring a new generation of coders, programmers and digital producers.
The season launched on 8th September 2015 with bespoke content from TV, Radio and Online.
One of the new digital platforms is mixital. Aimed at teenagers, mixital provides the tools and the users the imagination. EastEnders, Doctor Who and Strictly Come Dancing are just some of the big BBC brands waiting to see what people will create.
BBC Introducing and Vizii
Vizii is the music strand of mixital where users produce their own music videos.
I helped Jon Howard, Executive Producer of the team behind mixital and Manish Pradhan, Senior Content Producer, Radio Multiplatform with the final touches.
BBC Introducing specially selected the tracks they thought would work the best and I managed the relationships with the bands, checking they were happy to be involved and collecting their biographies, assets and logos that they wanted to be included.
BBC Introducing have set down this week’s challenge: ‘Make some visuals that feel like a live gig’.
It’s fantastic to see so much creativity in such a short space of time and I’m looking forward to seeing how it develops over the next few months.
