I'm on a Panel at New School Today

Come check it!

Tribeca Film Institute at The New School: New Forms of Storytelling

Location: Wollman Hall, Eugene Lang Building, 65 West 11th Street, 5th floor (enter at 66 West 12th Street)

Tuesday, September 22, 2009 7:00 p.m.

Contemporary filmmakers tell their stories using the latest tools, including everything from digital cameras to computer animation. The way they tell their stories has been shaped by the rise of short-form and user-generated content, video games, and virtual worlds that invite audience participation. At the same time, audiences are expanding their role by making films that are just one piece of a larger project. Come hear a panel discussion exploring storytelling in film today. The panel is part of "Tribeca Film Institute at The New School," a new series that presents leaders from film and digital media production, financing, and distribution.

Panelists include Thomas Allen Harris, filmmaker and founder of Chimpanzee Productions, a company dedicated to producing unique videos on the human condition; Jay Smooth, activist and video blogger; Nina Paley, filmmaker and former cartoonist and Kenneth Hung, socially conscious, multi-media artist. Moderated by Kelly DeVine, Artistic Director of the Global Peace Film Festival and consultant to Tribeca Film Institute's web-based initiative Reframe.

Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, and Craig Hatkoff founded the Tribeca Film Institute (TFI) in the wake of September 11 to educate, entertain, and inspire filmmakers and film lovers. The institute hosts programs that draw on the power of film to promote understanding, tolerance, and global awareness. TFI also supports the cultural and economic revitalization of New York City and Lower Manhattan through arts-based initiatives.

Co-sponsored by the Tribeca Film Institute and the Department of Media Studies and Film at The New School.

Admission: Free; no tickets or reservations required; seating is first-come first-served

Jay-Z on the Underground Railroad, w/ Mr. Voodoo and L Swift

Someone sent along this link on Youtube of Jay-Z's appearance on my radio show back in 1995. Joining in were Mr. Voodoo and L Swift, of the now legendary Natural Elements crew (who hit the scene soon after Mr. Voodoo joined the show as my intern).
