HD Expo in LA

This event looks great, if you can make it to LA next week (and I can't, sadly): HD Expo, at the Petersen Automotive Museum.

Two panels look especially on "Closing Escrow," an indie movie shot on HD, which'll trace the process from concept to distribution. That one features Randall Dark and Scott Billups. Another on "HD and Beyond" looks at future technologies (including 3D, and 2k and 4k digital projection) and asks how they'll affect the entertainment industry. That one features Mark Chiolis from Grass Valley, Josh Greer from Real D, and Allen Davlau, the cinematographer who shot "E.T." and "Defending Your Life," one of my favorite comedies of all time.
