The topics in this issue range from animation, which is enjoying surging demand, through to virtual production, which sees filmmakers use games tech to create incredible worlds in a studio.

We report on the outlook for commercials producers as economies start to reopen from lockdowns, and also weigh up the prospects for cinemas and the wider film industry.

In other features, makers takes in the rise of podcasting, the creative industries’ embrace of artificial intelligence, the Nordic countries’ art of production collaboration, the growth of Spain as a film and TV hub, and the future of branded programming.
