AFI’s enhanced TV workshop opens Wed.

Yearly interaction includes panels, demos

AFI’s fifth annual workshop on enhanced television will open Wednesday at the film school’s Los Feliz campus with a daylong series of events, including presentations of some of the year’s best work in enhanced and interactive TV, a keynote speech by Interactive TV Works CEO Craig Leddy and a discussion panel.

Afterwards, production teams from four PBS shows, ESPN, Turner Classic Movies, TV Land and the Food Network will begin intensive work with a group of mentors from companies that specialize in the field, including OpenTV, Liberate Technologies, Gold Pocket, ACTV, and Microsoft.

After two more days of closed workshops, the teams will continue to consult with the mentors while building broadcast-ready projects through the fall that will be unveiled in a Dec. 3 event.

“Millions of consumers in America and Europe have, or will soon have, access to interactive services,” said Marcia Zellers, the workshop director. “AFI has created an environment which allows for maximum experimentation and creativity but is also supported by industry leaders who hope to bring these exciting features into the real world.”
