For the last two years I have been working with my colleague Dr Alan Holt on a pan-European project to pilot IT and smart metering systems in social housing. Part-funded by the European Commission, the objective of the 3e-Houses project is to help households reduce their energy bills through the deployment of ICT and smart meters.
The project team is made up of organisations from across Europe including Spain, Germany, Bulgaria and of course, us here in the UK. IP Performance are working particularly closely with the UK partners: Bristol City Council, Toshiba Resear...read more

It was a presentation of a white paper entitled "Ten Driving Forces in Digital Marketing - A Digital Trends Paper 2012". The audi...read more

Having spent an ungodly amount of time getting there, it was now time to actually meet the organisers of the 7th Renderyard Short Film Festival, and to attend and participate in the director and producer interviews, screenings and Q&A sessions. Oh, and seeing as the "Semana Audiovisual y Digital de La Rioja" which hosts Renderyard, is in... er, La Rioja, there was a better than fair chance that there may be an opportunity to sample the local produce.

Due to attend the 7th Renderyard Short Film Festival, being held in Logroņo, La Rioja, in northern Spain, I was grubbing about in the dark early on Friday morning making last-minute preparations for my trip (I was going to say 'flight', but as I was to find out, it was going to heavily involve tubes, taxis, trains, cars, buses and Shank's Pony, too).

I'm about to travel to the 7th Renderyard Short Film Festival, being held in Logroņo, La Rioja, in northern Spain, and thought I'd write some blog articles about the experience, and IP Performance's representation there.
The Renderyard Short Film Festival is an annual event showcasing a rich selection of work from around the world, including documentaries, animations, online series, independent films and new music videos. The festival has actually already started as I write this, but the full seven day itinerary was a little bit much to justify to "The Management", ...read more
