How to use transmedia formats -in between games and film-
to connect with your young audience!

The international transmedia expert Asta Wellejus, Digital Director and Producer gives two exclusive lectures at the Financing Forum.

She will share her experiences on creating a unique broadcast for youth with Finnish broadcaster YLE.

” The way we engaged the users from early on, is the reason for the success of the experience” says Asta Wellejus.

Asta will walk us through Olivia17 (2017) and the following season Olivia18 (2018), which both was new ways of reaching youth for broadcasters. It created a massive hype amongst 13-18 year olds Finns and was seen by 20% of them. Olivia17 was shortlisted for the Emmys, nominated for Prix Italia, and won YLE´s Khora prize for most innovative and effective way of using game and film element, to create a new online format for young people. As part of the Opening Industry Day, the other lecture will share best practices used to develop the format with the users. From the early script stage, to the final launch.
