Panels at the Dominican Republic Global Film Festival

I had the honor of giving two presentations last weekend in Santo Domingo at the Dominican Republic Global Film Festival 2010 – both in conjunction with my friend Eugenio del Bosque Gómez of Cine Las Americas. The first panel was about Short Films on the Web and highlighted new online tools and distribution platforms used by video creators, filmmakers and remixer artists to share their work outside of the film industry system.

The second panel focused on the Future of Video on the Web where I showed HTML5 demos utilizing the <video> tag including dynamic content injection, popcorn.js and Arcade Fire’s The Wilderness Downtown interactive film. The discussion centered around the amazing potential of metadata visualization and open video on the web as well as the lingering dangers of DRM, geo-strangling, content matching bots and web media consolidation.

Here are short summaries (en español) of both the Short Films and the Web and the Future of Video on the Web panels.
