Posted on 6/2/2016 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

ACSIL has announced the panelists who will be speaking at its ACSIL FOOTAGE EXPO 2016 in New York next week. The event is being held at the historic Prince George Ballroom at 15 East 27th Street, New York City on June 9, 2016. This one-day event is a chance to meet with footage distributors from both Europe and the U.S. and to hear discussions about the latest trends in the stock frootage industry. 


Archival Producers Take Charge as Commissions for Archive-Inspired Programming Break Out
This panel will discuss the role of the Archival Producer on a production team and help the audience understand the growing appetite for such programming among OTT and VOD entities such as Amazon Prime, Netflix, Curiosity Stream, Smithsonian Networks, the Sundance Documentary Channel, and other startups on Apple TV and Roku. Featuring Archival Producers Jessica Berman-Bogdan, Sue Ricketts and Justine Gabbard


Producers Rack Up Victories in Court and Start Testing the Limits of Fair

Now that the production community has won the big legal battles regarding Fair Use of Copyright Material, including the right to disenable DVD security coding to exercise their Fair Use rights, a new test of Fair Use is now aggressive and ideological. This panel brings the prominent and active litigators and scholars to argue it out:  Where do they agree?  Where are the boundaries?  What is coming down the legal pipeline that may affect us all?  Featuring Nancy E. Wolff, Partner, Cowan, DeBaets, Abrahams & Sheppard LLP; Jack Lehner, Director of Intellectual Property Art and Technology Clinic, University of Califorina, Irvine and David Peck, President, Reelin in the Years

Big Minds Think Big Thoughts About the Future of Footage Licensing
The best strategic minds in technology, entertainment, academia, finance, and media provide their take on the strategic landscape of the footage-licensing future.  Featuring Chris Vizas, Partner, Sutton Hoo Studios; Denis Radeke, Content Development Manger, Adobe Systems and Mark Bauman, SVP Business Development, Smithsonian Institution



Creatives are Turning Evermore to Footage for Their Most Important Campaigns
Creative and marketing professionals are inspired and increasingly searching within the deep visual reservoir of the footage industry. Is the experience of a creative encounter with footage sources what it should be? This session will cast a wide net over the challenges facing the creative industry in searching for and licensing footage content in today's environment. Featuring Helen Higbee, Director, Business Development, Stills and Footage, Bridgeman Images; Andrew Delaney, Director, Creative Content,Getty Images and Derrick Rhodes, Director of Footage, Shutterstock.
How Technology Brings New Joy and Clarity to Footage Discovery
Perhaps no area of search technology is as active today as footage search functionality.  The Department of Commerce has devoted significant resources to develop search routines for visual materials that are comparable to our search for text.  And semantic web platforms provide associations to resources that are not necessarily built into the database.  Many of ACSIL’s members have introduced highly sophisticated search and discovery tools to assist those in need of footage. This panel will provide a bird’s eye view of best search practices and emerging technologies.  We’ve gone far beyond “advanced search.” You’ll learn why in this session. Panelists to be announced.

Independent Filmmakers Find a Hot Market for Their Stock & Archival Footage
Many filmmakers are generating significant revenue from their independent archives through footage licensing and sales.  This panel provides testimonials from independent producers who are generating significant revenue from their personal and independent archives.  Footage acquisitions and sales units will provide their take on footage in demand.  And services for prepping filmmaker archives for sale will round out this opportunity for today’s creative community.  Featuring Rob Crocker, Cinematopher/Founder, Uberstock and Mick Reed, Founder and CEO, Clippin.
