[MISP] Fwd: 4th Annual Digital Media Summit sponsored by HTC

Given some of what we've been hearing about the incoming administration, I'm cautiously optimistic about the prospects for film and digital media in the upcoming legislative session -- but it's more important now than ever that we emphasize the statewide nature of our programs and the opportunities they represent. 

That's why this weekend's events in Las Cruces are so important -- and why it's great that so many groups (the High Tech Consortium and Rio Grande ACM SIGGRAPH - but also groups like the NM Post Alliance, Rio Grande IGDA and my own NM Tech Council) are committed to having a statewide presence. I hope to see many of you there!

Best wishes,

 4th Annual Digital Media Summit sponsored by HTC.

 The HTC presents its 4th annual Digital Media Summit in conjunction with the NMSU Creative Media Institute (CMI) showcase of projects and media facilities on Friday, December 3, 2010 at CMI.

 This year, we are very excited about holding the Summit at the Creative Media Institute on the NMSU campus.  This allows us to conduct our discussions in the environment where digital media products are created and produced.  Discussions will revolve around taking stock of current resources, i dentifying opportunities, and setting goals for digital media work in southern New Mexico.  Six workshop sessions will focus on animation, gaming, entertainment, production management, marketing & visibility and recording, mixing & editing.  Demonstrations will include CMI's motion capture facility, the only THX multi-soundtrack mixing stage in New Mexico, and motion control techniques.  There will also be a showcase of faculty and student projects.  The event will be followed by a reception at the Sonoma Ranch Sunset Grill for Summit participants, HTC members and friends, hosted by the HTC.
