Kodak is sponsoring “16. The Number That Works,” a series of panels to be held October 19, 20 and 21, 2004, in
Portland, Oregon; San Francisco, California, and Seattle, Washington, respectively. Leading local filmmakers will discuss the art and technology of Super 16 mm filmmaking, including breakthroughs in film technology that have made originating on film more advantageous and cost effective.
The panel will include directors, cinematographers, producers, postproduction professionals and other filmmakers discussing real-life experiences. In addition to advances in Super 16 mm film, specific topics will include film’s image quality, digital compatibility, archivability, and common myths about costs in today’s postproduction world.
