Posted on June 11, 2011

On Saturday, ITVS's Jonathan Archer will be live blogging from the Producers Institute Public Conference Day at the Bay Area Video Coalition in San Francisco.


BAVC's prestigious Producers Institute kicked off on Thursday and runs through June 18. Over the course of a week, teams of filmmakers and technologists representing six hand-picked films will develop a science-based interactive platform as part of a cross-media storytelling strategy that includes the participation of global communities. Read about the participating projects here, including next season's Independent Lens film We Were Here.

Then, from 1pm to 4pm PDT, come back for Technology QuickFire: New Tools and Trends to learn about the latest cutting-edge technology filmmakers can use to enhance their storytelling.
