Beyond the Frame: Expanding the Language of Journalism Through Motion
Tuesday, October 22, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
Join AbelCine, in association with Canon & VII, for a special evening of networking and learning, Beyond the Frame: Expanding the Language of Journalism Through Motion.
As more and more photographers add motion to their work, the barriers between capturing still and motion images are becoming less apparent. Find out how three professional photojournalists have used motion capture to broaden their storytelling and explore multiple interactive stations, various camera configurations, and hands-on demos.
The evening will include:
VII Panel Discussion
Renowned for the quality of its photography, VII was created in 2001 and now represents the world’s preeminent photojournalists. Learn how three of these photographers – Jessica Dimmock, Ed Kashi, and Ron Haviv – have incorporated motion into their portfolios. Each will display selections of their work and discuss both the creative and technical processes that come into play.
After the presentation, each photographer will be available for individual discussions and Q&A.
Jessica Dimmock published her first monograph in 2007 and has won numerous international awards, including a World Press Photo award for multimedia. Her first foray into video came when she was commissioned to shoot a video for the musician Moby. Since then, she has worked on several Emmy-nominated series, including HBO's The Weight of the Nation. In 2011 she shot her first feature, Without (directed by Mark Jackson) which won her the Kodak Award for Best Cinematography at the Hamptons International Film Festival. Her clients include The New York Times Magazine, HBO, Showtime, The New Yorker, and Aperture. She is currently co-directing her first feature documentary.

Specific workflow processes will also be discussed.
