Kirsty Smith

Blogger & Author - Eeh Bah Mum

Kirsty is a writer and producer who has just returned to West Yorkshire after  20 years in Manchester and London producing  and developing television shows for the BBC, Channel 4, ITV Channel 5 and Sky.

Currently she spends her days working from home juggling childcare with writing, producing live immersive cinema/theatre events and attempting to garden. She doesn’t like being bored.

Working in television Kirsty travelled the world making comedy, entertainment and magic shows. She has  flown to Argentina to track down a one armed 80 year old magician, locked two presenters in a house filled with 60 chickens (in the middle of a bird flu scare) and made a live pony appear slap bang in the middle of a school playground.

Even doing silly stuff can get boring – when TV lost its sparkle Kirsty became Head Of Programming at Diagonal View, her job involved ‘creating online video content for big name global brands’ which actually sounds really boring so she prefers to tell people that she ran teams of creatives making cool stuff that has been viewed billions of times.

The part of the process Kirsty really loves is the development of ideas, running teams creating, developing and pitching for, well, anything – TV shows, radio programmes, online content, pranks, brand campaigns and immersive experiences.  Don’t worry even Kirsty doesn’t know what some of those words mean.

She has written a book based on her blog and has a sitcom in ‘development’ but that was last year, this year she is really hoping to get her Agapanthus to bloom.

How do you take a notebook full of jumping off points to a polished post ready for publication? Join Kirsty for a workshop on content idea development.
