Format sesh on Jan. 29

The Technology Council of the Motion Picture-Television Industries will hold a Jan. 29 seminar exploring the ramifications of originating and distributing films in different formats.

The seminar, which will be conducted by Disney VP Rob Hummel and co-chaired by Cinema Products founder Ed DiGiulio, will be held at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ Samuel Goldwyn Theater.

The sesh will explore the creative, technical and financial ramifications of the formats.

The org produced two short scenes in six contemporary film formats: 65mm, 35 mm anamorphic, Academy standard 35mm, full aperture Super 35 in both 2.40:1 and 1.85:1 aspect ratios, and super 16.

Most of the camera crews were headed by cinematographers Steven Poster and John Hora, who filmed two scenes (one interior, one exterior) in each format.

Cinematographer Vittorio Storaro will unspool scenes from “Little Buddha.” One-third of that film was recorded in 65mm.
