WHEN: September 4 – 6, 2019
WHERE: Binghamton, NY
REGISTRATION: NOW OPEN! First come, First serve
USITT will present its inaugural Digital Media Symposium on September 4-6 in Binghamton, N.Y., in association with LUMA Festival, America’s premier projection arts festival. Digital media giants Ana Herruzo and Finn Ross headline the symposium which also features two days of education, conversation, and exciting interactions with the technology and people that make up the art of digital media.
The symposium kicks off Wednesday evening, Sept. 4, with a casual networking reception for attendees in downtown Binghamton.
Ana Herruzo’s keynote speech starts the morning on Thursday, focusing on her world of video, projection, and programming design. The morning concludes with a sponsor-driven session before lunch and a full afternoon of content that includes the USITT Digital Media Commission-curated workshop Dig Deep – An In-Depth Look at Creating Content for Projection Mapping and the Live Events Industry.
Thursday evening finds us in downtown Binghamton for a boozy “tech crawl” — our industry spin on the traditional pub crawl! Experience the local spirits and fare while discussing the work and installations in progress on the surrounding streets.
Educational content will continue Friday, Sept. 6 with two sponsor-driven sessions preceding an informative and in-depth address by the inestimable Finn Ross. The afternoon rounds out with a panel discussion by the artists involved in the LUMA Festival. To close the symposium, we will gather for a light reception before participants head out to experience the wonder that is the LUMA Festival.
All of the above events, sessions, access to speakers, as well as breakfast and lunch each day for the following price points:
$300 for USITT members
$400 for Non-Members
$150 for Students
