The Unofficial Google+ Film Festival Cinematography Panel Features Legendary Camera Gurus Dan Kneece, Philip Bloom and Ben Kasulke
With more than 170 credits on IMDB, Dan Kneece is known for his steadicam and camera-work on such iconic films as Jackie Brown, The Artist, Grindhouse, Lost Highway, and Mulholland Drive, as well as TV shows such as Twin Peaks and Entourage, among many others. The first ever recipient of the Steadicam Guild's Lifetime Achievement Award, Dan has worked with such film luminaries as Ang Lee, Quentin Tarantino, and The Farrelly Brothers. Dan will be just one prominent industry veteran participating in the Unofficial Google Plus Film Festival's (UGPFF) Cinematography panel, a free online seminar taking place on Saturday, Dec. 14, 2013 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 pm Eastern Time.
The other panelists will include award-winning, multiple-Sundance Film Festival veteran Ben Kasulke, and DSLR camera guru Philip Bloom. The panel will be moderated by the UGPFF director, Jaime Byrd.
The format will be a free-form conversation between the three, with questions from viewers, as well as from Ms. Byrd, who is herself a celebrated director and cinematographer with her own production company, Blind Lyle Films.
"This panel represents decades of cutting edge, award-winning cinematography," Byrd said. "Together, they represent a wide array of filmmaking excellence – a higher-budgeted studio-friendly approach, a younger, more improvised micro-budget approach, and with Mr. Bloom, a more experimental, non-narrative type of filmmaking."
The online format, facilitated by Google Plus' "Hangout" technology, allows the members to interact in real time from Los Angeles (Kneece), Seattle (Kasulke), and London (Bloom). Viewers from all over the world will be able to tune in, ask them questions and listen to their discussion, for no charge. Participation fees are optional.
