Filmmaker Panel at Tribeca to Look at Creating Visual Styles

April 22, 2010
A panel featuring award-winning filmmakers will explore the collaborative process of achieving compelling image quality here at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival. Eastman Kodak Company, an official Industry Sponsor of the festival, will host the free seminar on April 29, at 2 p.m., at the SVA Theater 2, which is open to festival attendees and the public.

Tribeca Talks Industry: Talking With Pictures will feature some of today's leading filmmakers relating their real-world experiences in creating the look of a film. They'll explain how the visual style plays a significant role in defining the tone. Participants include: writer/director Lee Isaac Chung (Lucky Life), writer/director Jacob Tierney (The Trotsky), producer Jon Kilik (Babel), and cinematographers Nancy Schreiber, ASC (Every Day ) and Lance Acord, ASC (Where the Wild Things Are). The panel will be moderated by Brandon Harris of Filmmaker Magazine. Chung, Tierney and Schreiber also have films screening at the festival this year.
"The collaboration among directors, producers and cinematographers results in images that capture and convey the emotions of a story and get projects noticed," says Lauren Lung, vice president and general manager of Kodak’s Entertainment Imaging Division in North and South America."These esteemed filmmakers can speak eloquently about the artistic value and cost-efficiency of spectacular image making on celluloid."
Kodak’s support of the festival extends to the Filmmaker Lounge, as well as networking opportunities designed to enhance the festival goer's experience, and make possible many of the services provided to filmmakers during the festival.
Now in its ninth year, the Tribeca Film Festival runs from April 21 to May 2. The SVA Theater is located at 333 West 23rd Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues.
