Globoplay and GECA will be the protagonists of the first edition of the Portuguese event.
ONSeries Lisbon unveils new contents of its program with two sessions focused on the international landscape; the presentation in Europe of Globoplay, Globo’s new streaming platform, and the presentation of the latest study by the audiovisual consultancy GECA on narrative trends in fiction worldwide.
“Presenting Globoplay”: a presentation specially designed for the international community, content producers, and press participating in ONSeries. The new streaming platform, launched in Europe less than a month ago, belongs to the Brazilian giant GLOBO and features original in-house production. The enormous know-how of Globo, the world’s largest Portuguese-language content producer, and its many years of experience in producing world-famous telenovelas were applied to the production of the series and miniseries that make up the platform’s programming.
Ricardo Pereira, Director of Globo Portugal, said: “The launch of our streaming platform GLOBOPLAY further increases our presence in Portugal and the rest of Europe. GLOBOPLAY is the largest producer of series in Portuguese. Therefore, we took the opportunity to be present at this event to showcase some of our latest productions.”
“Fiction: Everytime Everywhere, Future Trends and Themes”: GECA, the international audiovisual industry consultant specialized in content and audience analysis, will present during ONSeries its latest study on narrative trends in fiction worldwide. Gloria Saló, Director of Production and Content Consulting at GECA, will offer an overview of what is currently happening in the international fiction market and will delve into what is to come.
A session that will help producers, curators, distributors, and buyers to reflect on the real possibilities offered by the production of a fiction series inspired by books, comics, digital publications, or graphic novels and that aims not only to be broadcast on linear platforms or channels, but also on the web, podcasts, or social networks. A good example of this reality is the fusion between e-sports and video games with audiovisual narrative, something that will also be discussed.
According to Saló, “ONSeries Lisboa offers the possibility of focusing on fiction at a very important moment of creation and production of stories, with a wide range of forms, formats and interesting proposals in the field of new narratives. A significant example is SIC’s production Princípio, meio e fim, a metafiction where creation and visual narrative go hand in hand.”
“ONSeries offers us a great opportunity to show and share our analysis with both the Portuguese industry and international representatives, and we are convinced that it will arouse much interest because it is a truly panoramic and forward-looking vision of how the new ecosystem of fiction is taking shape in today’s world.”
