The Academy Presents: Cinematography in the Digital Age

Academy governor Bill Kroyer will be hosting a discussion on cinematography at the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre (8949 Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills, CA 90211) through the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and boy is it going to be a doozy. The event is entitled 'Cinematography in the Digital Age' and will include the following speakers:
Scheduled guests (subject to availability) include Cinematography Branch governor John Bailey (“Country Strong,” 2010); Oscar-winning cinematographers Guillermo Navarro (“Pan’s Labyrinth,” 2006) and Dean Semler (“Dances With Wolves,” 1990); Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois, directors of the CG-animated film “How to Train Your Dragon” (2010), who will discuss how cinematographer Roger Deakins helped create the look of the film; and Science and Technology Council member Rob Hummel, who will explain the film and digital image capture processes; and Digital Intermediate Colorist Adrian Seery. The program will also included recorded remarks from this year’s Oscar winner for cinematography, Wally Pfister (“Inception,” 2010).
There will be clips of different films to go along with the discussion, and it looks like the kind of event that any aspiring filmmaker or critic would want to attend. The event is Tuesday night at 8pm, May 24. Doors open at 7pm and tickets are only $5. Students and Academy members pay $3. Buy your tickets on-line or in person.
