The Scenographer recently upgraded its website, www.thescenographer.com, and relaunched the home page with an exclusive presentation featuring the construction and mounting of the new FIAT 500 stand at the Frankfurt Motorshow by Massimo Pasquali, art director and creative advisor.
British production designer Peter Lamont, Oscar recipient for Titanic, was broadcast (streamed live) from Venice at the Auditorium di Santa Margherita November 27. The webcast included the Forum On New Frontiers In Contemporary Scenography: The Digital Age, with an international panel of industry experts in digital technologies for the entertainment industry. In a video conference link-up live from Vancouver, visual effects producer Ron Martin demonstrated the creative side of real-time CGI insertion with live action for virtual sets for the web-based sci-fi series Sanctuary.
These are the first programs The Scenographer has planned for its new site. The site is being mapped for rapid, easy viewing. The home page features a video which reflects the themes of the four main zones: film, theatre, television and entertainment in general. Each month, a fresh "making-of" will feature set design for filmed or live entertainment projects, from concept to construction, exclusive interviews with designers, and an in-depth look at techniques, new products, and innovations. The site gives an international window on events, trade fairs, awards, forums, and conferences in the entertainment sphere.
