Geeki Girl & FIU Presents "GeekiWood" Where Science & Tech Meets Hollywood
December 5, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC-5
GeekiWood brings together the art and magic of Hollywood storytelling with today’s science and advanced technologies. Artists use computers to draw and paint; scientists prove their theories with color and movement. Never has it been more critical for people to understand and feel comfortable with computers and the advances of technology. What better ways to learn than making art, seeing how your favorite TV shows and movies are made, and having fun? Geekiwood, the only festival of its kind, blends the magic of Hollywood with the reality of our scientific world.
GeekiWood organizers are mounting a series of interactive classes, workshops, and hands-on demonstrations to highlight some of the following elements which are used in making the TV shows and movies we love: Holograms, computer animation, virtual and augmented reality, stereoscopic animation, criminal investigation science, the technology of the space crafts used in Star Wars movies, and why zombies are zombies.
A General Admission Ticket ($8 Early Bird registration thru Sunday November 8th at midnight or $10 at the door) grants you access to Keynote Presentations, Workshops, Lectures, Lunch, Geeki Girl T-Shirt and FIU Expo.
