SXSW plans to welcome over 75,000 industry professionals from 80+ nations for its conferences, exhibitions and festivals this coming March. Beginning today until the 4th of September, the SXSW PanelPicker gives the community (you!) the chance to help select the 2016 Music, Interactive and Film sessions by voting for the ones that you think are the best fit.

The Mill has two panel submissions this year and we need your help to bring these ideas to SXSW 2016!  To help, you can vote for the panels by

#1 INTERSECTION OF FILM & TECH AKA MANUFACTURED MAGIC


Manmagic1280

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. – A. Clarke 

  
Crafting stories that bloom across the landscape of film & virtual-physical space requires a new way of thinking. Balancing story, artistry & technology simultaneously. Experimenting fearlessly means embracing magic. Mill ECD Rama Allen shares his perspective as a creative thinker & maker at the intersection of film & technology. Discussing hybridization of films & games, the power of collaborative world building, the role of memory in profound presence based virtual experiences & the fine line between science, magic & film making as our fingers brush the edge of science fiction level cinematic experiences. 

Speakers:

Rama Allen, ECD at The Mill in NY
