DV Filmmaking
A Panel Discussion

The world of independent filmmaking will never be the same now that small, economical video cameras are capable of simulating 'the film look.' Filmmakers, who might otherwise have been unable to afford the costs of producing their ideas on film, are now able to do so using digital video. At our December meeting, we heard from two such video artists, who shared examples of their work. We will also had a brief presentation on the technology, plus an overview of the impact this medium has had on the film community from the perspective of a prominent educator in the field.

Our presenters were:

Steve Mahrer
Director of Engineering
Panasonic Broadcast & Television Systems

David Tames
Program Director of Digital Filmmaking
Boston University’s Center for Digital Imaging Arts

Teja Arboleda
Emmy Award winning producer/director/actor/writer/filmmaker and former PBS Frontline staff editor.

Erik Latek
Independent Documentary Filmmaker, digital video artist and teacher
Currently negotiating release of a documentary for national cable distribution.
