Spring is in the air and we’re looking ahead to new things. On top of the projects we are working on at the moment, the next few months are going to be even busier with our team attending and participating in a series of events.
Next week Warren will be heading to Toronto to attend the Hot Docs festival for his 3rd time. Hot Docs, now in its 20th year, has developed into one of the most important documentary film festivals in the world. Plank is a big supporter of the documentary industry and we’re proud of all the projects we’ve been involved with over the last 14 years. From working with Michael Moore to the upcoming launch of an iPhone app for the film Last Woman Standing (set to premiere at Hot Docs on April 26), we love non-fiction filmmaking.
Go Beyond Pixels
At the beginning of June three members of the team will be going to the Go Beyond Pixels Conference in St. John’s, Newfoundland. The conference is focussed on modern front-end web & mobile development with some of the industry’s best speakers, such as Jeffrey Zeldman & Jonathan Stark, attending. And on top of everything we’ll learn at the conference, we’ll get the chance to go see Plank alumnus Nancy Beaton and her new baby, and spend time in our second favourite province.
Later in June, our business development team will be heading to the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas. For over 30 years, it has been the place for big names and properties to meet and greet. We’re hoping to meet some interesting companies and brands and show off some of our newest ideas.
One last thing…
There’s one more trip that may be happening at the end of June but we don’t yet have all the details. I just heard that it involves someone playing golf. If you’re going to be in Toronto, St. John’s or Las Vegas for any of these events, drop us a line – we’d love to see you!
