Keeping up with the on-demanders – a new narrative arc for modern storytelling

Presented by: Christoffer V. Ebbesen, commisioning editor, DR

Artificial Intelligence, the Universe and Everything Digital Storytelling about the big questions in life
The internet is not only a great place for kittens, it is also a huge forum for people thinking about the big questions in life – where do we come from, what are we doing here, what comes next? Far away from hate speech and fake news there is a big crowd that cannot dig deep enough. Giving insights in some of the reward winning projects she worked on, such as „What to believe in“, „Do Not Track“ or „Homo Digitalis“, Christiane Miethge will talk about her experiences telling digital stories that really matter. 

Horisont Digital. Successful world stories for a young audience - on demand (DR) Telling 25 minutes reportage stories from around the world, Horisont is the oldest tv-format in Denmark. To reach a new and younger audience, the new format Horisont Digital was introduced in summer, 2018 for DR’s streaming service DR TV. But what tools were used to make the successful transition? How was the working process, the failures and successes – and how did the young focus groups help to develop the format? Presenter: Søren Klovborg (DR)

Saunapäivä - Sauna Day, was Yle's main campaign for summer 2019.

Presented by: Tiina Klementtilä & Elina Saunamäki (Yle) - FRIDAY 14:00

Streaming - the future of public service: Taking DR from flow to streaming. In the recent years more has happened to DR and the rest of the public service broadcasters than ever in history. In very few years streaming platform have changed from being catch up services for tv-channels, to a lot of Dane’s preferred platform, when they want to watch tv. How can DRTV find its position in a marked, where we compete with international giants? And how does the future look for Danish content – and does Public Service have any future at all? Presented by: Peter Rosberg, Head of publishing (DR)

Social media or own platforms? Why we must have both? Understanding the change of digital media is relevant when building relationship to new audience. For public service media it’s liability to build its mission around media usage. That's why Yle youth media has build it's strategy strongly to third platforms. But own platforms has very important role in it, for a reason. Case example: TLDR Mad Areena & Youtube. Anne Saloranta started her career in digital media as an entrepreneur by leading one of the biggest social media websites in Finland in early 2000. For recent years she has been building digital strategy for Yle youth media brands Kioski and YleX as Digital Strategist.

Secret stuff about Instagram Storytelling. There are at least two reasons why you should create drama to the Instagram. One: the real time mobile drama is constantly going on in the phones of teens and young adults. Two: Instagram is in their pockets, purses or in their hands all the time. Just a click and you are in. Learn the secrets of producing drama series into Instagram. Hyppe Salmi is working as an executive producer in Drama department of Yle. Her backround is in Youth programming and now she is mixing those two by creating both online drama and drama series to Instagram for young adults. Karma was the first Instagram Stories drama and Nofilter followed. 

News on YouTube. DR News has had a significant raise in subscribers and a higher involvement among users. DR News make videos with a long and lasting attention span and try to focus on a more thematic angle to every possible news story. The goal is to enlighten and educate a younger but very critical audience. This session is presented by Dan Gliese Rasmussen who is a digital editor, and he has been focusing on news for young people via the third party platform YouTube in the last 18 months. Rasmussen has mainly been a tv-reporter since 2004, and has worked as managing editor for various news medias from 2012 till present.
