We Need To Talk About Thievin’

[Image by Michele Aquila] Interesting email exchange a while ago between me and a new, pale and interesting writer type we’ve been working with on a scripted comedy series. He and his – equally pale and interesting – writing partner have been working hard on a draft script for a pilot episode, plus working up […]

Good Stuff

[Image by Alan Benzie] For the past few months we’ve been filling ourselves – not literally in the New York diner featured above, but figuratively-speaking – and our Development Portfolio with some bloody Good Stuff. (Although a US outpost of Not From Concentrate is obviously still on our wish-list.) DEVELOPMENT PORTFOLIO The Development Portfolio is […]

Stop Getting Hung Up On Diversity

[Image by WoodleyWonderWorks] Good grief! It’s Good Friday already! Easter Greetings from Not From Concentrate HQ where public holidays don’t mean that much anymore. Still, that’s a cross we have to bear. See what I did there? Amongst the other jobs to get done today, I wanted to write a protracted blog post that covers […]

TV is Dead! Really?

[Image by Robert Couse-Baker] As we take the first steps into this all-new, but as-yet-undefinitively-named, decade, we’d like to be the first to officially proclaim that TV certainly isn’t dead – despite the protestations of many of its opponents in the middle of the Noughties – but continues to be the cornerstone of visual entertainment […]

Green Is For Go

[Photo by Batega] A fortnight or so after the official launch of Not From Concentrate, there’s a small window of opportunity – perhaps more of a porthole – to braindump and share some of the experiences that we’ve encountered during the pre-public launch phase of this humble-but-aiming-high start-up. So, in no particular order, here go-go-goes: […]

Rage Against The Machine

[Photo by greenkozi] Blimey, take a few days out to spend some time in the Spanish sun with the Little ‘Un and all hell breaks loose, in TV terms at least. Seems that some of the industry’s great and good have been having a pop at various aspects of the media establishment and what it […]

Tides Of Change

[Photo by Duncan Rawlinson] Great opening episode of Soho Stories, a three-part series on Radio 4 fronted by ITV’s former Director of Entertainment and Comedy and current CEO of Eyeworks UK, Paul Jackson. This episode – A Thousand Flowers – documented the creation of Channel 4 in 1982, despite the protestations of ITV and the […]

Wogan Tosh

[Photo by ralphbijker] I see that El Tel hit the tabloid headlines this weekend – PR-fectly timed a few weeks before his new series returns to the box – bemoaning the “cheap” and “humiliating” state of today’s TV schedules. “It’s not what it was like 50 years ago,” he laments. Of course it’s not and […]

Creative Sparks

[Photo by SadJr] Great mix of meetings last week with broadcasters, indies and emerging creatives, as the Not From Concentrate network widens, gradually getting the word out about this – increasingly apparent – unique approach to finding new content ideas from the rich seam of undiscovered talent across the globe. From the industry side of […]

Content Pimp

[Photo by telethon] That, my friends, is what Not From Concentrate is: we take ideas for new content, refine and tart them up, then take them to the street and pimp them out to the industry. Many thanks to the legend that is Aegis’s Steve Taylor for this soon-to-be-copyrighted three-syllable strapline that will further confuse […]
