UCL Festival of the Moving Image

This Sunday (12th February 2012) I will be giving an intro to my work on film cognition and a live eyetracking demonstration as part of the UCL Festival of Moving Images 2012:

The evening will begin with a screening of Tarsem Singh's The Fall (2006), a beautiful digital fairytale that exemplifies Tarsem's use of digital compositions and mise en scene.

This will be followed by Richard Linklater's rotoscoped philosophical dream journey, Waking Life (2001).

Both films explore issues related to the fantasy of reality (and vice versa) and it will be my task to bridge the two with some demonstrations of exactly how illusory our experience of the real-world is.

The event is free but space is limited so please come along early if you are interested in attending.
