Beyond the Reel: Explorations in Media

Over at my day job, which this week is my entire life..., TFI Youth Director extraordinaire Lisa Lucas has put together a great panel on new media. It's for our TFI Youth program, but this one promises to be good for anyone interested in where things are going.

Hear from Wreck & Salvage along with many others. Here's one of their videos:

In an age where you can watch a blockbuster on YouTube and a rooftop can become a movie theater—the way that we view films and filmmaking will never be the same again. The internet has transformed how people watch and interact with moving images, while galleries and new venues for video art have created the chance for multi-screen projections. By bringing together four very different but extremely exciting artists who are expanding the definition of “filmmaker”—this interactive event will give students the opportunity to meet with artists like acclaimed hip-hop video blogger Jay Smooth and mashup masters Wreck & Salvage. Join us for this experimental evening as we explore spliced archival footage, vlogging, film installation, and video games.
