DIGITAL PRODUCTION CHALLENGE II

In close cooperation with the European Film Forum Scanorama, 4–7th of November, Vilnius.

 

The European workshop on digital production workflows, especially designed for 35 film professionals, widens its doors to all film professionals from all countries.

 

From filmmakers, cinematographers to post-production supervisors, from producers, line producers, production managers to film funders, distributors, sales agents, working on feature, documentary and cross-media projects.

 

The workshop will be run in English by experienced professionals including:

Martin Hagemann, German producer at Zero fiction (The Turin Horse by Béla Tarr, Fay Grim by Hal Hartley, Moloch and Father and Son by Aleksandr Sokurov);

Philippe Ros, French DoP, AFC (Oceans by Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud, Home by Yann Arthus-Bertrand);

Florian Rettich, German DIT (Pina by Wim Wenders, Die Wermessung der Welt by Detlev Buck, Highlander – The Source by Brett Leonard);

Tommaso Vergallo, French consultant with 20 years of experience at Swiss Effects, Duboi, Quinta and Digimage (Amelie by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Asterix and Obelix, Mission Cleopatra by Alain Chabat, René by Alain Cavalier, Amour by Michael Haneke, Ten by Abbas Kiarostami, On the Road by Walter Salles).

 

Although digital technology is now a part of everyday life, a plethora of workflows on one hand and a lack of lasting standards/supports on the other make their work more challenging for all film professionals, including
producers, to fulfill the demands of their partners (co-producers and distributors) and to position their films on the market.

 

DPC enables professionals;

• to get a better grasp of this complex environment, of the tasks division between the partners involved - from the filmmaker to the post-production provider;

• to be more confident directing, producing, distributing in this everevolving digital world.

 

… thanks to:

• comparison of the most used workflows in Europe, case-study presentations of different budget ranges (special focus on low and “standard” budgets) by experienced producers and their post-production providers;

• discussions on selected participants’ projects (feature/documentary/ cross-media films);

• panel discussions on key topics such as teamwork, digital archiving, distribution and exhibition (including distributing through Internet protocol);

• focus subjects on selected technical aspects.

 

DIGITAL PRODUCTION CHALLENGE II is proposed by FOCAL Resource in co-operation with FOCAL, European Film Forum Scanorama and with the support of Creative Europe MEDIA, a programme of the European Union, and the Lithuanian Film Centre. Affiliated programme: TorinoFilmLab.
