|Gory Stories: Violence in TV and Film, Focus of Third Annual Filmmakers Town Hall Meeting at DeSales University, Wed., April 16
The DeSales University TV/Film Program's third annual Filmmakers Town Hall Meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m., Wednesday, April 16, in the Hurd Science Center Auditorium at DeSales University. "Gory Stories: Violence in TV and Film," will be the focus of the event, which is open to the public free of charge.
Lehigh Valley filmmakers and "cinephiles" will come together at the annual town meeting to discuss trends, ethics, financial implications and consequences of Hollywood's preoccupation with gratuitous violence and gore. Designed as a participatory event, audience members are encouraged to contribute to the dialogue by sharing opinions on how violence in the media impacts modern society and the art form.
The program is made possible through the TV / Film Visiting Artists grant from the Dexter F. and Dorothy H. Baker Foundation.
The Filmmakers Town Hall Meeting will be moderated by Professor Chuck Gloman, director of the TV/Film program at DeSales. The guest panel will include David Tafler, chair of the department of media and communication at Muhlenberg College, Fred Strype, professor of screenwriting at Sarah Lawrence College and the Columbia University School of the Arts, and Ray Hoover, a professional cinematographer with nearly 20 years experience in the TV/Film industry.
