NXNE Spotlight! Kensington’s 'Pocket-sized Films,' creating for mobile

From their Blog:

From June 15th – 18th NXNE Interactive (NXNEi) takes place at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Toronto. This year, the festival has over 50 panels that explore technology, social media, interactive marketing and business practices. With the aim of providing tools for entrepreneurs and those employed across the spectrums of the music, film and entertainment industries, the line-up looks quite diverse.

Adding to an already exciting line-up of presentations on Saturday June 18th, Kensington’s founder Robert Lang and Interactive Producer, David Oppenheim, will talk about creating films for multiple-platforms, in which they’ll detail their Gemini-nominated music project, City Sonic: a GPS mobile application coupled with short documentaries about extraordinary artists and the places in which their musical lives were transformed.

During their presentation, “Pocket-sized Films”, they’ll explore how mobile devices are creating new ways for filmmakers to completely reinvent a film’s concept, execution and distribution. And they’ll recount the details to their audience about how they pulled off their successful project in which they created 20 short films, a website, iPhone app, mobile website, half-hour television series, and a Nuit Blanche installation.
