Multiple award winning director/filmmaker Ang Lee will be this year’s keynote speaker at NAB 2016’s Future Of Cinema Conference, speaking about his upcoming film “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” and “pushing the limits of cinema”.
2016 will see the release of Lee’s latest film, which is described as the “first major motion picture release to have been captured in 120 frames-per-second 3D at 4K resolution and in High Dynamic Range”. It’s interesting to note the film covers what are probably the last couple of themes at NAB (3D and 4K), and what looks to be the theme of this year’s NAB (HDR). This level of filmmaking will be the topic of discussion during his keynote, with editor Tim Squyres and production systems supervisor Ben Gervais there as moderator and guest speaker respectively. The trio will also present the first public screening of footage from the film “in its native 4K, 3D, 120 frames-per-second format using a cutting edge dual laser projection system.”
The Future of Cinema Conference Keynote – Pushing the Limits of Cinema will be the first day of NAB 2016, Saturday April 16th 2:15pm – 3:00pm in S222, though it should be noted that room numbers can potentially change prior to the show. Access to the keynote is included in NAB’s SMART Pass and Conference Flex Pass.
