Panel Discussion: Slitscan Pioneers Defining an Age of Motion Graphics
Stanley Kubrick famously only won one Academy Award, received in 1969 for Best Visual Effects on 2001: A Space Odyssey. That pioneering work was largely created and shot by Douglas Trumbull who designed and built a computer-controlled rostrum camera that shot the extraordinary stargate sequence. Slitscan was born.
This unique panel brings together Roy Naisbitt (2001: A Space Odyssey, Who Framed Roger Rabbit), Bernard Lodge (Dr Who, Alien), Liz Friedman (BBC Young Musician of the Year, The Crystal Cube), Peter Truckel (Bladerunner, FilmFex director and cameraman), and Doug Foster (video artist), who will show and explain their slitscan work for movies, titles and commercials, and more recent projects that have been influenced by slitscan techniques.

Part of the accompanying events programme for LCC's Screen School Beyond 2001: New Horizons, an exhibition that explores how activating the archive can creatively enable the development of new work and inform ideas.

Exhibition: Thursday 18 January - Friday 16 February 2018

Celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the Stanley Kubrick Archive at the University’s Archives and Special Collections Centre, students will produce and show work alongside invited artists and academics that offer new perspectives inspired by archive material from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

A cross-school collaboration celebrating all things screen, the exhibition will be set in motion with accompanying performances, events, panels and workshops, punctuated by screenings for staff and students.
