New Cinema: The Future of Digital Storytelling
Eyebeam will hold a large-scale, team-based digital storytelling event at its Chelsea, NY exhibition space from December 13th-Dec 16th. The project is being organized in collaboration with The Creators Project, a global arts and technology from Intel and Vice, and award-winning visual effects company Framestore.
The event, dubbed "New Cinema", will be the first event concentrating on team-based brainstorming, design, and systematic development of new hybrid digital storytelling methods which can shape the ways in which we think about possible futures of cinema. All projects will be realized by unorthodox methods and take on fresh creative coding approaches, commercial and open source software and hardware hacks, and "creative misuse" of the latest camera, sensor and computer technologies.
The Creators Project and Eyebeam curated five cross-disciplinary teams consisting of creative coders, conceptual artists, 3D/CGI/Special FX and cinema technology professionals as well as directors, cinematographers, editors, scriptwriters, and musicians/sound designers. The teams will spend three days in Eyebeam’s Chelsea exhibition and fabrication space developing their initial prototypes, working with cutting edge tools, and exchanging ideas with other teams. A public exhibition of the completed projects will be exhibited at Eyebeam from January 29th-February 3rd.
