Workshops and Panels from VideoFest 24
That’s right we had a Oscar Winner and a Student Academy Award Winner giving panels in 2011. We are dreaming up new things for VideoFest 25.
Theo Rigby’s short film Sin País has won the Bronze Medal in the 38th Annual Student Academy Awards in the Documentary Category. Rigby will talked about how to make a good film website, using innovative storytelling on the web and using video and stills–trans-media, multi-media, interactive, and participatory elements.
Distributor Jacob Wolters of Oscilloscope, Gerard Roxburgh, of Once I was a Champion, Nick DeMartino, a transmedia specialist, and Ya’Ke Smith, winner of the 2010 Texas Show, will served on the panel on Saturday. Moderated by Bart Weiss, Artistic Director of Dallas Video Festival.
Have you heard nothing but bad things about Final Cut Pro X? Well, Bart Weiss belives you differently. He is gave a Final Cut Pro X workshop.
Experimental filmmaker Kerry Laitala will facilitated a workshop on cinegrams. SF Weekly called Laitala the “Best Filmmaker without a Pixar contract (yet).” Her work is colorful and innovative, showcasing some of the most fascinating creativity that can be found in the world of film and video.
Brandon Oldenberg of Moonbot Productions will present a workshop on child friendly apps for the iPad. Oldenberg co-created the digital storybook, The Fantastic Flying Books Of Mr. Morris Lessmore with award-winning children’s book author William Joyce. The app has received rave reviews and is a groundbreaking form of literature and art that combines moving images with the feel of a children’s picture book.
