Partners with Emerson for seminar series

The Caucus for Producers, Writers and Directors has partnered with Emerson College in Boston to produce a seminar series on new media and next-generation showbiz technologies.

A series of eight panel seshes with industry leaders will be assembled by the Caucus in the coming months and videotaped for use in Emerson’s film and TV program classes. The first sesh was held earlier this month at the Burbank offices of 3Ality, a 3-D tech outfit, that included an extensive demo of the latest 3-D equipment.

The initiative with Emerson was spearheaded by Vin Di Bona, an Emerson grad and a past chairman of the Caucus. Di Bona, exec producer of ABC’s “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” is overseeing the videotaping of the panels.

“This is a plan I have wanted to develop for Emerson since my graduation,” Di Bona said.
