Roughly two years ago, esteemed producer Ted Hope visited NYU to give a lecture about the future of film and the state of the industry. A very important idea was spawned from that lecture: the creation of an NYU think tank / incubator dedicated to the future of cinema. A safe place within the walls of the university where students from all disciplines could research and experiment with models and ideas that could change the industry. With a lot of hard work and the dedication from Grad Film Chair John Tintori, Ted himself, Dean Campbell, and the Think Tank Committee, a dream became a reality. Last year the newly minted Cinema Research Institute (CRI) picked its first 4 fellows. Claire Harlam, Edward McDonald, Jacob Robinson, and Ryan Heller are the founding fellows of CRI. They are currently working on their research projects. Now its time to start thinking about the next round of fellows.
Ted Hope and the current CRI fellows will be on hand for an information session Wednesday February 22, 2012. When: Wednesday February 29, 2012 @ 5:00 pm Location: 721 Broadway Tisch, room 1027 We will discuss the CRI and the application process.
