The second annual ACSIL Footage Expo, is where the world’s essential footage organizations met up with media’s top players and visionaries.
ACSIL is the trade association for the global footage industry, and its members control the essential motion imagery of our time. Some of us are really big with high-end digital workflows and offices worldwide; some are specialists with expertly crafted motion experiences; some are units of the globe’s major news and media companies; some are governmental departments; some nonprofit; some hand-crafted collections of rare and esoteric cinematic experiences.
In short, we are the organizations who have set up offices to work directly with the creative community. We have invested in digital imagery and digital workflows, in film & video restoration and preservation, in descriptive metadata and algorithmic finding aids, in the artists and filmmakers who capture iconic events and landscapes.
And our members own rights to the most celebrated moving imagery ever produced on earth.
The ACSIL FOOTAGE EXPO 2016 is anchored by these major sources of footage: news archives, contemporary HD cinematographers, natural science & behavioral specialists, historical motion picture archives dating back to 1895, pop- and high-culture rights holders, animation and graphic artists, celebrity footage, dash-cam operators, time-lapse specialists, international shooters, etc. etc. etc. This is where we strut our stuff, engage our clients, and extend our reach.
This is was our second Expo, and it was held at a wonderful space in midtown Manhattan: historic Prince George Hotel, built in 1904. We hosted a variety of sessions on today’s footage dynamic in creative, commercial, and educational media. It will be an unforgettable day, and a memorial to the moment when footage started to drive all communications.
