Upcoming speaking engagements

This year will be the first time I'll will make to IBC, thanks to the persistence of Phil Streather to have me present the editing workflow section of his "3D at the Movies" super panel. The full panel will cover many elements such as pre-visualization, shooting and post, all presented in a large Real-D equipped movie theater. It will be a first for me to demonstrate 3D convergence manipulation live onto a screen of that size (seating over 800 people apparently.) So if you're in Amsterdam the morning of September 14th, might be worth dropping by early to seek good seating (for the better 3D experience.)

Something closer to home. This weekend I will be presenting part of the editing panel, covering post for the 48 Hour Film Project. If you have read here at all, you know I'm a big fan of this competition. I will be at the SaVille Theater at San Diego City College from around 1pm through 5pm, this Saturday. Primarily I will be showing local 48 Hour teams how to produce HD masters that are ready for projection. If you are putting a team in this year, and many already are (almost at capacity for teams now), and if you can't come to this session, please read up on the new HD submission guidelines -- And practice before the competition weekend. The a seminars on film making for this competition (and others) starting at 10am, you can see them all for only $15 -- more info here.

Sponsoring 48 Hour Film Project for San Diego 2009

For last 5 years CineForm as put a team in this touring film making competition. In the last two we have sponsored the event by providing HD playback and HD up-res services for those submission that need it (everything is converted to CineForm AVI/MOVs for playback.) San Diego's 48 Hour is still the only city that is allows HD submissions for 1080p projection. This year we expanding, we are helping in Filmmaker Seminars in the weeks before, and we are putting in two teams this year to the competition -- this is not part of the sponsorship we pay like everyone else, and we don't even use the company name for these teams, never have -- always just for fun.
