The SMPTE documentary MOVING IMAGES will explore the excitement surrounding the development of motion imaging technology from turn of the twentieth century through the present while inquiring about what the future has in store. Through interviews with top filmmakers, historians, entrepreneurs, and engineers, the documentary will investigate the influence that art and science have on each other.
Film and television have been the most popular art form and communication tool for more than 100 years. The Oscar and Emmy Award winning Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) is an important part of that history. To celebrate our centennial anniversary in 2016, the Society is producing a feature length documentary.
