I'm not sure if this is the right part of the forum to post this but. hey, here goes....
Your opinions please.
My newspaper is being sold by the owners. Trinity Mirror. ( huge company)
the sale will be going through sometime in the next few months. but we don't yet, to anyones knowledge, if we have a buyer.
I run the picture desk on a weekly newspaper.
My ' soundslides' project ( you may have seen it, photos with a soundtrack of the event / people speaking) has aparently been very well recieved and many people in the industry are talking about it.
Trinity Mirror want me to go to Birmingham next week to make a presentation to a big Editors meeting, They want me to tell all, how I do it, what it costs and how long it takes etc.
I think I will go as I guess it is good for people to know who I am and you never know where these people will be in a years time.
However, the other side of me says.. stuff it, I have spent my own money and lots of my own time, hosting it myself coz IT sucks and they want me to give them the knowledge before they kick us out.
They will pick it up on their own of course if I don't do it. but I was hoping that my team will appear to the new buyer as a princess with a few tricks that they don't have. and make them want to get into bed with us.
I am right to go arent I?
thanks in advance.
If you want to see the shows they are at.
