We went out with a bang on Day 5 of #CreativeWeekUK with a packed studio for our very last live debate. Four great panellists – Glyn Dewis (@GlynDewis), Erin Moroney (@erin_moroney), Timothy Allen (@timothy_photo) and Richard Curtis (@richardcurtis) – spent the best part of an hour debating whether digital photography is ‘all tech and no talent’. All the talk around digital retouching certainly kept things interesting and the discussion continued long after the cameras stopped rolling – both in the studio and on Twitter. It was the perfect end to #CreativeWeekUK.

Throughout #CreativeWeekUK, thousands of you got involved on Twitter by tweeting your questions and opinions to the #CreativeWeekUK hashtag. In fact the latest figures show that in total #CreativeWeekUK was mentioned 5,443 times. And thanks to you all, we even trended on Twitter!

All the live shows were broadcast online from studios in the heart of London, and we were very lucky to have Tower Bridge as our backdrop for the week. But if you missed any of it, or want to watch some of the lively debates, show and tell sessions or product showcases again, then you can download it all on-demand at your leisure from here.

The question on everyone’s lips was whether smaller production budgets make for more original content. Day 3 of #CreativeWeekUK saw us discuss how smaller budgets have become a natural by-product of the contracting broadcast and cinematography markets, and the implications that has had on creativity and quality standards.

We were joined by three great panelists for our live debate at the start of the day. Dan Jones (Maverick TV), Marc Goodchild (ex BBC) and Justin Weyers (Made Visual Studios) chatted about everything from independent productions and YouTube testing, right through to how the skills of hungry graduates can be best used in industry and what the future of video production has in store.

As always, the #CreativeWeekUK Twitter community played a huge part in the debate, with contributions including whether new technologies and production tools raise standards or just client expectations. And they also had their say in our daily poll with 90% of people agreeing that smaller budgets do make for more original content. What can we say…get creating!

We also welcomed Jason Levine over from the US who spent some time showing off the latest video tools Adobe has to offer including the new, streamlined Premiere Pro interface.

If you want to catch up on any of this week’s shows, then be sure to visit our website. Plus there’s still time to get involved in the final couple of days of #CreativeWeekUK by taking part in our competition. We’d love to hear from you!

In the lead up to the UK’s first Creative Week on 9th – 13th July, we’re going to be hosting weekly Twitter Chats, in partnership with Future Publishing. This Thursday, between 6.30pm and 7.30pm, we’ll be kicking these Chats off by talking all things design and publishing, and we want you to let us know your thoughts on the industry and where it’s headed.

It’s well documented that the design and publishing industry is going through a huge period of change, driven by the explosion in digital publishing and accelerated by the surge in popularity of tablets and mobile devices. But what does the industry look like from your point of view? Some of the topics up for discussion include;

  • Where should digital publishing develop next?
  • How can (print) designers evolve to adapt to digital publishing workflows?
  • What still excites you about print, and what does it take for a print product to attract your attention in a digital world?

Join in our Twitter Chat by using #CreativeWeekUK and follow @AdobeUK, @ComputerArts, @CA_Collection and @CreativeBloQ to see the conversation starters, as well as interesting views from our Adobe Solutions Consultants.

Plus, everyone who uses #CreativeWeekUK will automatically be in with a chance of winning one of two tickets to the Design and Publishing day of Creative Week on Tuesday July 10th, which will be jam-packed with exclusive demos, lively debates, creative challenges and inspirational case studies!

Don’t worry, if you aren’t one of the lucky ticket holders you don’t have to miss out as we’ll be broadcasting all the sessions live online, so why not register now?
