Media Modelling-sign

 

The new show from HaMeX Events - that explores 'the media' in all its forms
was held on 6th May 2018


However it is important to note that this wasn't 'just' film and television, and certainly wasn't 'just' science fiction and fantasy - though of course none of that was excluded!

But we want a much wider range of modelling subjects - as the logo says, not only Film and TV, but Books, Comics, the Theatre, Video Games and expanding media and publishing even wider - how about images that have appeared on Record Covers? What with digital files and downloads, the last could be thought of as a 'forgotten format', but vinyl has recently made a comeback, though as we know, it never really went away!
