The shift of filmic presentation from 35mm prints to digital code is having an enormous impact on the experience of watching movies. But there is more to the digitization of cinema than proffering razor sharp visuals and crystal clear sound. This event will profile both the aesthetic and technological shift gripping the film industry through the display of a selection of title sequences and short films which will be contextualized by their creators.
On Saturday May 15th, three prominent designers, Nic Benns, Olivier Marquezy and Balder Westein will introduce and discuss the design process behind some of the films we have come to know and love and seek to change our understanding as to how crucial to the cinematic experience the title sequences are. Following their presentation, Simon Ruschmeyer, a renowned short film maker will introduce a selection of internationally diverse short films from a wide variety of genres that will highlight characters who seek escape from the lives they live within a digitally created canvas. Saturday night’s festivities will conclude with digitally oriented music and projected presentations of some of the highlights of the title sequences and short films.
The following evening will allow those who were entranced by the insight provided the night before to further explore this under appreciated cinematic convention with a showing of a large selection of title sequences which range from ‘Dr. Strangelove’ to ‘Thank You For Smoking’ provided by the Amsterdam-based nonprofit organization Submarine.
