Audio-Visual & Digital Media Forum

Opera Europa offers its members a new specialized forum for colleagues working in the field of audiovisual and digital media. Like other OE forums, this group will support the professional development of a specific interest group and will offer a serious space - during and outside our main conferences - for reflection on areas of common interest.

 

Audio-visual and digital media forum meeting, 27 - 28 April 2017, Finnish National Opera and Ballet, Helsinki

The next meeting of the AVDM forum will take place in Heslinki around the excellent new flexible fixed-rig installation at the Finnish National Opera and Ballet (FNOB). The meeting is open to all those interested in audio-visual capture for opera and dance.  As well as the opportunity to visit the new installation at the FNOB, the meeting will focus on several key aspects for our sector:

- How to ensure the buy-in of the chorus and orchestra for A-V projects
- How is new technology changing the field of performance capture.
- What are the secrets of making appealing short-form contextual videos.
- How best to work with broadcasters, if you can, and how to manage without, if you can't.

The programme includes the opportunity to see a performance of Only the Sound Remains, the new opera by Kaija Saariaho, directed by Peter Sellars. Here is the link to the full programme and registration form, which should be returned to luke@opera-europa.org by 31 March 2017.  Join us!
