Scion of a phenomenal family and a regular guest at Cinequest, Christopher Coppola is chairman of the film program at SF Art Institute. A pupil of George Kuchar’s, Coppola now supervises the classes that the pioneer underground filmmaker once taught at SFAI. He’s adding VR to the curriculum at the school. He’ll be presenting “Universe at Play” a fantasy short about the collision between the world of a beatnik composer and a forest troll.
Coppola’s appearance at the fest will be part of the way Cinequest is doubling down on its VR component Cinequest s.

Just one piece of equipment can change the way we edit. Take something, for instance, as simple as the guillotine tape splicer, introduced by CIR of Italy in the late 1960s (by tape splicer, I mean a splicer for joining film using transparent sticky tape, not a splicer for joining audio tape, although they existed too).

Volumetric video is an emerging format of video featuring moving images of real people that exist truly in 3D — like holograms — allowing them to be viewed from any angle at any moment in time.
