Assistant professors Patrick Winters and Andrew Utterson were invited panelists at a recent Cornell Cinema special event. The two discussed the impact of science and technology on how movies are produced and consumed, following a screening of a new feature-length documentary on the subject, Side by Side.
Utterson teaches screen studies in the Department of Media Arts, Sciences, and Studies. He recently co-curated a 2012 Blu-ray/DVD release of the 1928 silent film The Passion of Joan of Arc directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer.
Winters is also a member of the Department of Media Arts, Sciences, and Studies, and teaches audio courses. He has worked in the film business for more than 30 years, serving as sound designer for movies such as Psycho (1998), Finding Forrester, and Good Will Hunting.
