Landau to speak at 3D event

'Avatar' producer set for Q&A at Gaming Summit

“Avatar” producer Jon Landau will be one of the keynote interviews at the 3D Gaming Summit to be held April 21-22 at the Los Angeles Hilton.

The summit will explore how videogames, aided by new technologies like stereoscopic 3D, are bridging the gap between interactive and linear entertainment. The event will include keynotes, one-on-one interviews, panels, networking breaks, tabletop displays, private screening rooms and an industry reception.

Landau, besides producing the pic, was instrumental in creating “Avatar: The Game,” one of the first big console games to use 3D technology on the Playstation 3 and XBox 360.

Other industry leaders to be interviewed by conference co-producer Bob Dowling include helmer Paul W.S. Anderson (“Resident Evil”) and Phil Eisler, general manager of 3D Vision for NVIDIA.

Variety is a partner in the event with Unicomm.
