Superpower Dogs from Cosmic Picture.
Pairing an Exhibit and GS Film on Dogs
Experience in many museums has shown that pairing a popular exhibit with a related GS film can be much more successful than either could be on its own, the whole exceeding the sum of its parts.
This year the first examples of a fully coordinated GS film and exhibition have opened, with Superpower Dogs from Cosmic Picture and “Dogs! A Science Tale,” developed by the California Science Center in Los Angeles.
GSCA Film Expo and Filmmakers’ Symposium
More than 200 people attended the Giant Screen Cinema Association’s Film Expo and Filmmakers’ Symposium in Los Angeles, March 11–13. The two-day Film Expo featured screenings of new films, clips of films in production, and presentations on films in development.
The Filmmakers’ Symposium included six sessions intended to acquaint newcomers to GS production with the unique aspects of the medium.
Our exclusive coverage includes details on the films presented and on sessions in the Filmmakers’ Symposium.
