How does an intrepid film make its way, through jungles of images, seas of sound, and often years of conceptualizing and production, to the screen? In partnership with DCTV, we're excited to present Science New Wave Field Notes, an exclusive glimpse into the production process with a few of our favorite filmmakers, and even scientists working with video. The event also serves as launch for the latest feature from our sister-site Labocine, which will now allow the incorporation of filmmaking Field Notes directly into film pages, allowing viewers a deeper dive into fascinating work. Much of the labor of filmmaking -- hours of experiments, outtakes, and test footage, not to mention scrapped scripts, endless interview transcriptions, and deep research into tangential leads -- ends up invisible in the final creation.vThis night of film talks, and Labocine's Field Notes hereafter, offer a glimpse of some of that hidden wealth.
The event will wrap up with a reception, so grab a drink and catch up with some of the filmmakers, meet other members of the Science New Wave, and make plans for your next cinematic expedition. This will serve as our opening party!
