NewImages Festival: Independent Creation in Times of COVID-19

As part of our FR//XR initiative, we have partnered with the NewImages Festival and are pleased to invite you to join us for a talk on "Independent creation in times of COVID-19" that will be broadcasted live Thursday, 24 September at 11am PT / 2pm ET / 8pm UTC+1 

Lockdown and recession have impacted countless freelance artists and media creators. Many industry members declare losing income, or even facing an end to their creative practice. How has a collaborative approach risen and could a co-creative mindset become a foundation for the new reality? How do the artists react to the crisis? And to what extent the pandemic can be seen as an opportunity to revise rules and values of the young XR industry?

Speakers:

  • Olivier Fontenay (Head of the Digital Creation Department, CNC),
  • Amaury La Burthe (CEO & Creative director, Novelab),
  • Anja Moreno-Smith (Chief Operations Officer, Potential Synergy),
  • Bracey Smith (Founder and XR Creative Developer, Potential Synergy),
  • Hosted by Ana Brzezińska (Curator and Producer, Kaleidoscope VR)

The online discussion is a part of FR//XR : an iniviative led by the partners of French Immersion - the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the USA, the CNC, Unifrance and the Institut Français - who have entrusted Kaleidoscope to conduct a research that aims at analysing major COVID-19 induced changes on the XR market from the perspective of content creators, buyers and distributors, as well as paving the way towards a new business model for the immersive industry.
