With the Consumer Electronics Show 2010 just wrapped in Las Vegas, I thought this would be a good opportunity to explore recent technological developments and their implications for the future for the motion picture / video production industries.

I am joined by James Mathers, president and co-founder of the nonprofit educational cooperative The Digital Cinema Society, who has been a director of photography on more than 35 films (including one of my recent favorite documentaries The U.S. vs. John Lennon) and several TV series. James began his career as a child actor alongside greats such as Henry Fonda and Buddy Ebsen and specializes in shooting filmstyle digital.

Also joining us is Philip Hodgetts, who is a recognized authority on the changing nature of the digital landscape and his company, Intelligent Assistance (Big Brains for Rent), a system and technologies consulting company specializing in nonlinear editing, creative effects, and streaming. Philip has an enviable record of accurately predicting changes in technology and will talk about the present and future of the post production business.
