New Tools for Filmmakers: Virtually Augmented 3.0 Reality

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Driven by cloud computing, mobile and semantic technologies, virtual, augmented, and alternate reality, and crazy-sexy-cool search functionalities, web 3.0 is transforming the internet from a network of information to one of knowledge, services and linked data — with immersive digital content touching every aspect of our lives. Why should documentary filmmakers care about augmented and virtual reality? How can character-driven and issue-driven films leverage new creative opportunities in virtual and mobile spaces to achieve measurable impact in the world? Don't be one of those filmmakers who wish the digital revolution never happened, longing for the days of flatbeds and answer prints. At this panel, you will hear about new, interactive 3.0 doc projects from a panel of filmmakers who are considering stories as data points, subjects as avatars, real and virtual environments, 1st and 2nd life, and collaborative filmmaking "in the cloud." This is not your grandmother's once-upon-a-time.
