Event description

Description

VCA Film and Television and ACMI X proudly present an event for film and culture buffs, industry experts, and data nerds.

Featuring: The University of Melbourne Research Platform Services, ACMI, Arcitecta, and ANDS.

Over 100 hours of VCA short films have been digitised by the ACMI archives team. Sharing and re-using film related data will give experts and researchers unparalleled access to film, and historical data in which to extract greater meaning.

State of the art technology has been designed to attribute specific tags to each film on a micro level, to provide a specific piece of video content for research and reuse.

This will open up new opportunities for collaborations between data creators, film historians, filmmakers, and data users to discover, ingest, refine, and understand the component data and metadata elements of film, television, and online video records.

This opening night event will show how researchers, IT and the creative arts can work together to use data to create dynamic and interdisciplinary connections.


Keynote Speaker: Jason Lohrey

Jason founded Arcitecta with a vision to create the world’s best database engines. Today, his team solves complex information management problems around the globe.

For the new archive, Jason developed a bespoke solution, which will provide the right data, in the right place at the right time and ensure that researchers and film experts achieve the maximum value from the film database. This will be the first audio-visual film school archive with interactive capabilities to launch in Australia.
