SXSW Panel Announcements...
Matt Dentler is taking a cross blog-o-sphere approach to announcing...
Organizers at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Conference & Festival are happy to announce the first batch of new panel topics scheduled for the 2008 panels. The SXSW Film Festival takes place in Austin, TX from March 7 to 15. The SXSW Film Conference and Panels, will occur during March 8 to 11. Here's a sneak peek at one topic already taking shape:
Animation and Digital Effects on a Budget
(Sunday, March 9)
Sophisticated visual effects and computer-generated animation used to be big-ticket items, best left to the $100 million blockbusters from Pixar and the Hollywood majors. But new tools are making visual effects and CG-animation more accessible to independent filmmakers, and also spawning smaller VFX and CG shops willing to work with indies. We'll get an update from several innovators on the front lines.
Stay tuned to the SXSW Film Conference site for updates on panels and confirmed speakers.
In other SXSW news, I'd like to announce that there's going to be mad crazy party in my hotel room at some point during the festival. Stay tuned for details!
