LIFT Co-presents Panel: The Future is Now: HD in the Pre-standardized Age

A Community Panel for Media Art Creators, Producers, Distributors, Exhibitors and Production Centres

A Community Panel for Media Art Creators, Producers, Distributors, Exhibitors and Production Centres

Join us for an interactive discussion about High Definition creation, distribution and exhibition in the pre-standardized-format age.  The panel will feature informed commentary from artists, educators, production centres, distributors and exhibitors regarding the history of previous format paradigm shifts and the issues that need to be addressed moving forward. The aim of the panel is to create a fluid dialogue within the community regarding best practices for current creation and presentation, with an eye towards the distribution and archival issues that current practices may encounter in the (not so distant) future.  Q&A  and an open forum will follow the panel discussion.
 
Confirmed panel speakers include:
Nick Fox-Gieg: Independent animator and media artist
Kim Tomczak:  Artist and co-founder of the media arts distribution centre Vtape, and Associate Professor of Visual Studies at the University of Toronto    
Jim Hardie: Sales Executive at Creative Post, Post Production Facilities
Jerrett Zaroski: former Technical Director for the Ottawa Animation Festival
