CHICAGO FILM AND TECH CONVERGE
Title: CHICAGO FILM AND TECH CONVERGE
Entry posted on Dec 16 by
(Chicago, IL, December 15, 2008) – The “city of Big Shoulders” is about to assert business leadership again, as a center for technology. Coming up this January, the 2009 Chicago Motion Graphics Festival and the Chicago Convergence produces seven days of events about the mergers of technology, entertainment, advertising, media, and more.
“The frontier of motion pictures has shifted from films and television towards ipods, computer games and personal technology,” said Mason Dixon, founder of the six-year-old festival. “If you look at film as just being Hollywood, then of course California and New York have a lot to offer, but when you include games, music, advertising and Internet technology, Chicago really outshines other cities.”
Earlier this year, The Chicago Convergence, began its efforts to pioneer Chicago as the New Media Capital, presenting the 2016 Olympics as the New Media Olympics, and Chicago as the best home for it. The Chicago Convergence will be run a day of panels and presentations as the Technology portion of the Chicago Motion Graphics Festival in 2009.
“Chicago had the ‘Chicago School of Television’, and led the way in network radio and data transmission. Chicago continues to play a leading role amid a seismic shift in entertainment options. This festival is an essential part of the town’s leadership in this field,” said Dixon.
Computer based games have overtaken conventional movies in revenue and sales, and Chicago is home to 3 of the 10 largest advertising companies in the world, Leo Burnett, DraftFCB and DDB. Many claim Obama’s online efforts played a significant role in his campaigns fund-raising and Get Out The Vote operations. The Chicago Convention & Tourism Bureau for the first time integrated live video projection and new media elements into their annual Burnham Bash by working with the audio/visual event engineers known as Psymbolic. After Obama’s election, one of the Tourism Bureau’s newest ventures, ExploreChicago.org, will be expecting a lot of new visitors.
The Chicago Motion Graphics Festival runs from Monday, January 20th to Sunday January 25th in various locations across downtown Chicago.
