Fourth Keynote: Digby Lewis, Dailymotion

We were certainly disappointed when Kate Burns left Dailymotion and had to back out of the keynote slot for the show, but we’re thrilled to announce that we’ll have Digby Lewis, who is creative director for Dailymotion UK, on Friday, 17 October. He’s in charge of the acquisition of UK-relevant content and sourcing and devloping “unsigned” directors through the platform’s Motionmaker programme.

Digby LewisHe also directs the platform’s editorial strategy, and brings a wealth of experience to Dailymotion, including 12 years in print, TV, and online journalism, including five years at MTV producing interviews and coverage at European music festivals. Prior to that, he was a diary writer for Daily Telegraph and features editor at the youth music bible Ministry. His career highlights include interviewing David Bowie (three times!) and producing documentaries for the Rolling Stones.

Watch this space for an interview with Digby soon!
