  3. SXSW 2012: Shooting and Editing the Non Scripted Feature

    An examination of the changing face of feature film production in the realm of the non scripted, improvised feature film. Acclaimed director Barry Jenkins moderates a panel discussion with Filmmaker Amy Seimetz, Editor Nat Sanders and Director of Photography Benjamin Kasulke to examine their changing roles as collaborative filmmakers in the world of the improvised film.

    We will look at the recent trend of improvised feature filmmaking in the American Indie scene and take a technical look at how the roles of Director, Editor, and Director of Photography intersect on a script-less feature film. We will discuss specific examples from improvised feature films worked on by Seimetz and Sanders and Kasulke, two longtime Independent collaborators. Through discussion of filmmaking technique and audience Q&A we will explore the positives and negatives of working in this method.

  4. SXSW 2012: We Are Legion: Digital (R)Evolution

    WE ARE LEGION: The Story of the Hacktivists (SXSW 2012) takes us inside the world of Anonymous, the radical "hacktivist" collective that has redefined civil disobedience for the digital age. The film traces the collective’s evolution from merry pranksters to a full-blown movement with a global reach. In the last year, Anonymous has been associated with attacks or “raids” on hundred’s of targets ranging from financial institutions, cyber-security firms to foreign dictators. They played a vital role in the “Occupy” movement and recently launched the largest DDoS attacks in history against Hollywood for their support of SOPA.

    Armed with colleagues from the filmmaking and digital communities, writer/director Brian Knappenberger weighs in on the challenges of making the film, the roots of Anonymous, and their current battles with Hollywood.

  6. NPR: Can 3D Printers Reshape The World?

  7. SXSW 2012: In The Cloud: Your Film in a Post-Ownership World

    We are in the early stages of a massive paradigm shift that will forever change people’s attitudes towards “consuming” film and TV. With shelves of books, video and music reincarnated in the Cloud, opportunities for indies are rapidly changing. A $10 gross profit on a DVD is now a nickel for a stream. The proliferation of digital platforms—with Microsoft, Amazon, Google and Netflix leading the charge—calls for nimbleness, flexibility and DIY savvy. These skills are old-hat to the indie producer. And as we know, connecting social media between your film and its audience is key. New Video moderates a panel of filmmakers and technology experts who will share their vision of the future, critical insights on new trends, and concrete strategies for survival in a post-ownership world. Specializing in indie, documentary and art house films, New Video distributes across streaming, downloading and cable VOD platforms and hard goods to a broad spectrum of stores and platforms.

  8. SXSW 2012: Multiplatform Storytelling: Frontline War Stories

    While the academics preach of the wonders and promise and “mechanics” of “transmedia” storytelling, there are pioneering producers on the ground really doing it. There are good days and bad. There is money and there is not. And then there are the fans. What does it take to pull off successful multiplatform storytelling?

    We are at the birth of a new industry, an inflection point, much like the history of film or radio or television or even the Internet where technology gives rise to a new means to tell stories. It is a time before the “institutionalization” of the multiplatform industry. And just like the history of film or TV the early pioneers are stepping out now and taking a lot of arrows. They are experimenting, learning what works and establishing best practices. They are master storytellers using and in some cases inventing new tools. They have failed and they have succeeded. And these are their stories.

  9. SXSW 2012: DSLR Gear: Film Production in a Carry-On (Or Two)

    The Bui Brothers have traveled around the world shooting on DSLRs for the last three years, starting with the Nikon D90 (the first video-capable DSLR) then quickly moving on to shoot the first US nation-wide TV commercial on the 5D mark II. They have used these cameras in video production since they were released and have evolved their gear bags to contain the best and most efficient DSLR gear. This workshop will cover all of the DSLR gear and accessories that they use on location shoots. They travel light, even with local shoots and will talk about all of the necessary gear for shooting efficiently…even things that don’t fit in the carry-on but will make your shoot go smoother and easier.
