Snapchat has built a reputation as the go-to app for millennials, representing a new, mobile-first direction for digital media. As of this summer, Snapchat had more than 173 million daily active users.
Sean Mills, Senior Director of Content Programming, delivered a keynote speech at MIPCOM 2017 to outline how the camera company is making new inroads into content creation for mobile. He discussed the company’s growing slate of Snapchat Shows and the future of made-for-mobile video content.
He walked through how Snap Inc. approaches partnerships with legacy media companies, TV networks, film studios, and independent producers, and how to produce for vertical video. He also explored how mobile content can complement traditional linear programming, and the types of genres they are hoping to expand into – from scripted Shows to horror, documentary, and animated series.
