SIGGRAPH Business Symposium to Focus on Key Issues Facing Film and Game Industries venerd́, 05 Luglio 2013 - 09:27 PM - 8 Months, 1 ago - 15 Letture - top stories - 1-CreativeCow (Chicago, Illinois--July 5, 2013) The SIGGRAPH Business Symposium offers attendees an intense, productive day with this year’s focus on disruption and innovation in the content creation industries -- namely games and films. Unlike any other conference, SIGGRAPH provides a unique forum where leaders from film, games, and broadcast cross paths and share ideas with scientists, academics, and world-class researchers. It is geared towards higher level executives and studio heads. "There has never been a more urgent time for industry leaders to unite in order to discuss solutions for the dire straits our industries and colleagues are facing," says Evan Hirsch, SIGGRAPH 2013 Business Symposium Chair and Executive Creative Director, Engine, Co. 4." We must deliver productive change as the industries as we know them are in a precarious situation. I am thrilled that we continue to add speakers to the agenda that will inspire our attendees and stimulate conversation amongst them. For instance, the new addition of Academy Award winner Richard Chuang of Cloupic along with Marc Bolas, a noted researcher and pioneer from the USC Institute for Creative Technologies, adds even more depth to what already is a can’t miss event for industry executives, leaders, and visionaries.”

The multi-platform project began as a 24 episode web series that allows the audience to enter an underground world and become part of the story through a groundbreaking interactive app, and has since grown into a feature film. Starring film legends Danny Trejo, Kinga Philips, Frank Krueger, Kristoff St. John and Louis Mandylor, Redemption is an action/drama that takes place below ground in New York City. The plot follows a documentary filmmaker into the depths and dangers beneath the streets where the homeless, gangs and police are at war.
