I’ve returned from a glorious week at FMX 2012 in Stuttgart, Germany. Still a little jet lagged but I will be posting about some of the panels throughout the week. However, I managed to post about the higher frame rate panel I moderated with Doug Trumbull, Ray Feeney, and Johannes Steurer of ARRI for my TOH/Indiewire column, along with a few highlights related to virtual production, which was definitely the most popular track, organized by FMX primary partner, Autodesk. In fact, you can view my session at The Area.
As you might imagine, our discussion of The Hobbit was enlightening. Trumbull offered some solutions to combating the video look, Feeney said we shouldn’t rush to judgment, and Steurer suggested that there’s a balance between pushing photographic boundaries that are appealing for filmmaker and viewer alike.
