Audiences can expect an insightful session that provides a blue-print to businesses and filmmakers looking to understand how to move beyond product placement, to the creation of stories and narratives that can marry a brand ethos. They'll be touching on a range of core topics, from financing to multi-platform planning and the impact of new technologies, such as VR and Oculus Rift.

Case studies will touch on Takedown: The DNA of GSP, a feature documentary on the life of UFC champion George St-Pierre, to the world's first web and mobile channel LIB TV, and award-winning interactive web series' collaborations with leading consumer brands such as Facebook, Adidas and Sport Chek.

Ad Buzz: Compelling Stories Inspired by a Brand is slated for October 2, 2014 at 9:00am.
