The Future of Cinema

  • Jun 15, 2014 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

With the rise of immersive technologies to both consume & record 360 degree video material we're excited to brainstorm the implications this would have on Cinema.

From there we want to develop various techniques to capture immersive, 360º degree film experiences.

Here are the major concepts we want to discuss:

1. Pre-production -> screenwriting, animated storyboards (w/ speech & sound?)
2. Production techniques -> lighting, recording, crew positioning, binaural sound, etc.
3. Editing -> cuts, viewfield-wide transitions/effects, etc.
4. Consuming -> viewing environment, sound


To get a taste of these technologies check out the following links:

    The Location at the Bank of America building is not available. Since the weather is so good we'll meet at Bryant Park, just east of the Ping Ping pong tables, that's the entrance on 42nd street between 5th & 6th ave (closer to 6th).
