The Conversation Launches in October
A new conference called The Conversation is coming to the Bay Area in October, focusing on the convergence of film, games, visual effects, CG animation, and Internet video. What new creative and business opportunities are emerging as these fields start to overlap and interact?
On October 17 and 18th at Berkeley's Pacific Film Archive, people will gather from the worlds of TV, film, online video, and games to talk about the convergence taking place. You'll hear about new distribution channels, new tools, and the future of visual storytelling. Topics in great detail will be posted as we get closer to the event.
