SMPTE has announced that Todd Douglas Miller, the filmmaker behind the critically acclaimed Apollo 11 moon landing documentary, will present the keynote at the 2019 NAB Show’s Future of Cinema Conference (FoCC), produced in partnership with SMPTE. NAB Show’s FoCC, “Now, Next, and Beyond the Yellow Brick Road,” will take place April 6-7 in Las Vegas. Miller’s Apr. 6 keynote (9:10 a.m.) will describe the process of making “Apollo 11,” which premiered Jan. 24 at the Sundance Film Festival, where it received a Special Grand Jury Prize for Editing. Working with unprocessed, never-before-seen 65 mm footage recently discovered in the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), as well as 11,000 hours of uncatalogued NASA audio recordings, Miller and his colleagues first digitized and restored the film, then created an 8K transfer of the footage. More information about FoCC is available here. SMPTE members can register here and use code EP07 to take $100 off the NAB Show nonmember rate for a Conference Flex Pass registration or to get a free Exhibits Pass. The offer expires Mar. 25.
