CineFest, The Greater Philadelphia Film Office, DIVE and the Festival of Independents are proud to present the "Bridging The Gap with Masters in Cinema Effects" panel discussion on Monday April, 11th.
As filmmakers continue to push the bounds of our imaginations, they seek ways to heighten reality. Whether through the use of physical models and practical in-camera effects or through a digital post-production pipeline utilizing the latest technology, the need to achieve stunning imagery is forcing the hand of some of the industry’s most creative teams.
This panel will focus on the prevalence of Effects work in modern filmmaking and the considerations which lead to decisions about what is accomplished on-set and what is left for post-production.
The panel will be a moderated discussion led by DIVE’s Executive Producer, Andy Williams and, among others, will include the following panelists:
Executive Producer, Jack Rajasekar - Jack is bringing the film Endhiran to CineFest 2011 and employed Legacy Effects, Stan Winston’s creature shop to execute elaborate special effects sequences within the film.
DIVE Visual Effects Supervisor, Mark Forker - Mark's credits during his 13 years at Digital Domain include Lord of the Rings, Titanic, Apollo 13, Cinderella Man and Star Trek: Nemesis. Since joining DIVE his credits include The Road, Happy Tears, Let Me In and the upcoming action film Safe.
The event will be held at DIVE/Shooters Post & Transfer, 601 Walnut Street. Please enter on 7th Street between Sansom and Walnut. Proceed to the South Elevators and to the 10th Floor.
