Directors on Digital

This panel assembles some of this year’s noted directors working in digital video to discuss aesthetics, technology, and their most recent films. Are there secrets to directing digital video? How does form influence content? What drives the decision to shoot digitally? Are these directors just hungry to play with the latest gadgets and gear? How much of the choice to shoot digitally is grounded in economics and how much in aesthetics? How do directors rate their experiences working in DV? How has digital technology altered the filmmaking process? This panel is moderated by Anne Thompson, contributing editor for New York magazine.

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
