MASTERCLASSES   Oct 19th, Saturday, 12noon, Screen 2 GETTING PERSPECTIVE:THE ART AND SCIENCE OF 3D MOTION PICTURES Presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences   Hosted by Robert Neuman   As developments in 3D technologies and digital projection continue to advance, filmmakers are expanding their use of 3D into a wider range of movies in ways that are more immediate and visceral than ever before.   Hosted by Academy member Robert Neuman, “Getting Perspective” will serve as a stereoscopic primer, exploring basic mechanics of the medium including intraocular distance, audience position, active vs. passive glasses, and circular vs. linear polarization, then delve into such issues as before-screen vs. behind-screen 3D convergence, audience eye fatigue, adapting big-screen 3D effects for video, the challenges of subtitling, and where stereoscopic 3D film production may be heading in the future.

October 20th, Sunday at the Liberty Theater, 6 p.m   The Digital Dilemma:Motion Pictures At Risk in a Digital World Presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences   2007’s landmark study from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on digital motion picture preservation issues, The Digital Dilemma, reported from the perspective of the major motion picture studios and large commercial and government organizations. A new study, The Digital Dilemma 2, reports on digital motion picture preservation issues from the perspective of independent filmmakers, documentarians and nonprofit audiovisual archives. Independent filmmakers produce 75 percent of theatrical releases in the United States, and there are more than 1,000 nonprofit audiovisual archives worldwide. These groups often lack the resources, personnel and funding to address sustainability issues, and they face their own version of the digital dilemma. The Academy will discuss the report’s findings, which include proposed interim options for these independent filmmakers and nonprofit archives to consider. Presenters: Milton Shefter, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences member and Digital Motion Picture Archive project lead Andy Maltz, director of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Science and Technology Council   The program will include a panel discussion moderated by Variety’s Asia Bureau Chief, Patrick Frater.

October 22, Tuesday, Screen 2, Metro Theater, 12 p.m. GETTING PERSPECTIVE:THE LITTLE MERMAID 3D Premiering a 3D digital projection courtesy of Walt Disney Studios   Presented by Academy member Robert Neuman Introduction, followed by the screening of THE LITTLE MARMAID In conjunction with “Getting Perspective: The Art and Science of 3D Motion Pictures,” the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presents the Indian premiere of “The Little Mermaid 3D.”   Based on the Danish fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, “The Little Mermaid” tells the story of a mermaid who falls in love with a human prince. The film is credited as launching the Disney Renaissance, a period that gave birth to such hand-drawn classics as “Beauty and the Beast” (1991), “Aladdin” (1992), and “The Lion King” (1994).   Preceding the screening, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ stereoscopic department head, Robert Neuman will discuss the process and challenges of crafting stereoscopic-3D versions of existing 2D animated films.

Oct 23, Metro Cinema, 12-3pm, Screen 2 Music Composer Masterclass Speakers: Achile Forler (MD of Universal Music Publishing India) Lucy Launder (Head of Mastering at Abbey Road Studios) Christian Wright (Mastering Engineer Abbey Road Studios) Jonathan Allen (Mix Engineer Abbey Road Studios) Moderator:  Andrew Mackay

Oct 24, Metro Cinema, 130pm – 3pm, Screen 3 Masterclass by Bruce Beresford on Preparation by the Director A key factor in this preparation is story boarding the scenes. An invaluable tool, especially for young directors working on their first feature. Storyboards force the director to think about what it is he or she is doing; how the visuals will relate to one another and how different angles, lenses etc will best tell the story and reveal the characters.
