  • CineGrid @ HAFF
    My name is Frank Kresin, been to CineGrid for the fourth time now, seen it grow
    My personal goal: how to make this technology useful for society & the arts
    Coincided with the decision of SURFnet to build a 4K production facility
  • Holland Animation Film Festival production
    - started with a dream by Robin Noorda: networked premiere of their film: Red End
    - initial enthusiasm by USA & Japan
    - turned out to be too complicated, network-wise: end-point
    - lesser goal: 4K premiere of Red End
    - with an additional workshop for animation artists
  • Results:
    - turned out to be film block of 7 films, totaling 70 minutes new material (!)
    - workshop by 10 participants
    - over 200 visitors at mayor Dutch Animation Film Festival
    - discussion amongst 11 film makers, venue holders, film funds & Film & TV academy
    - lots of enthusiasm
  • Workshop
    - Hands-on workshop for animation film makers
    - By Robin Noorda and Bethany de Forest
    - 10 animation film makers
    - using photo still camera's (12MP)
    - experiments with lenses, material, effects, layers & post production
    - final post-production on SURFnet & Waags production facility
  • ‘What the 4K!: Films’ consisted of the following films:
    Leader Holland Animation Film Festival 2009, van Motomichi Nakamura – 38”
    Red Thread 4K Workshop van Robin Noorda & Bethany de Forest - 3’
    Red-end and the Seemingly Symbiotic Society, Robin Noorda & Bethany de Forest - 15’
    Chase (teaser), Adriaan Lokman - 1’30”
    Handelingen, Maarten Isaäk de Heer - 12’
    Hemels Licht, Jan Karel Lameer - 5’
    Not a Test, Jan Karel Lameer - 2’
    #37, Joost Rekveld - 30’
  • Pannel reactions:
    - public: wauw
    - film makers: enthusiastic, new medium
    - venue directors: no real driver. no content, no new value
    - film funds: skeptical. it's all about the story, not technology
    - NFTA: this is the future, at least for (post-)production. we need a pipeline
    - good discussion; food for more
  • Discussion - amongst them Harry Schreurs & Cees de Laat
    More understanding
  • Future:


    BUT
    we have to take the people who make things VERY seriously
    they know what they want and they know how to make things
    inspiration & facilitation is key - if so, we can bring this forward

HOW DID WE GET THERE? • desire for a Dutch post-production and viewing facility for Higher Education • SURFnet & Waag Society teamed up to get Zaxtar 4K Video Server & Eyevis 4K screen EYE-LCD6400-4K • it turned out to be too difficult to make it work (!) • fortunately there was a working option: NTT 4K JPG 2000 decoder by KEIO University 6 EYE-LCD6400-4K
  • 7.

  • 14. FINDINGS • we need strict technical standards for viewing conditions • it’s hard to find material that will satisfy & convince makers and what makers like, is often different from scientists • network-to-venue is still a bottle-neck • problems with the sound: selection of surround channels • you need a lot of co-production • with a lot of support you can get things done 14
  • 15. FUTURE DIRECTIONS • More workshops are called for • SURFnet & Waag Society will go to education soon • We need work on the pipeline, with NFTA - help wanted tekst • HAFF has asked for follow-up.. Red End 15 Robin Noorda & Bethany de Forest
