Kodak will present a fireside chat at the Slamdance film festival in Utah with eminent cinematographer John Bailey, ASC ("As Good as it Gets," "The Big Chill," "The Accidental Tourist") on January 16. The discussion will center on Bailey’s work on "Brief Interviews with Hideous Men" and "The Greatest," which are both in the dramatic competition at the Sundance film festival running concurrently. Bailey shot the two independent movies on Kodak 35mm motion picture film – both on limited budgets.
"Brief Interviews with Hideous Men" stars Julianne Nicholson and marks actor John Krasinski’s directorial debut. Director Shana Feste’s "The Greatest" stars Susan Sarandon and Pierce Brosnan. Bailey will share his professional experiences shooting each of these films in 35 mm anamorphic format with traditional answer printing. He will offer his insights on achieving that big-budget look for smaller productions as well.
“John Bailey continues to capture a broad range of subjects and breadth of movie genres on motion picture film, highlighting the ability of this advanced technology for capturing superior images,” says Michael Morelli, vice president and general manager of Kodak’s motion picture business in North and South America. “His work also shows that film is a very affordable medium for a wide range of production budgets.”
Kodak will also co-sponsor a new online program this year with Slamdance, which will make movies screening at the festival available for real-time, paid downloads through the Indieroad.net Web site (www.Indieroad.net/Slamdance). Filmmakers will share in the revenue generated through this new program. Visitors to the Kodak Web page (www.kodak.com/go/motion) will also be able to link easily and directly to Indieroad.
