On the occasion of the opening of the Video Mapping Festival #2, Rencontres Audiovisuelles and the DeVisu laboratory of the Université Polytechnique Hauts-de-France offer IBSIC, an annual event dedicated to the video mapping industry, in the presence of international great names in the sector.
Meetings, conferences, case studies, projections… 35 professional speakers will share their experiences and analyse the various aspects of this new sector which is growing significantly (writing, technology, training, production, economic models, projection, etc.).
Networking times will also be provided to meet artists, producers, programmers, etc.


******************
ECONOMIC MODELS


Unlike other sectors, video mapping is poorly subsidised and, without support for creation, its funding depends mainly on the will of the sponsors. However, the discipline remains expensive, because of the material investment and the multitude of skills it requires. In such a context, how can we find a financial balance? On which economic model should we rely on? Do new schemes that are not based on orders or subsidies exist? Case studies and short conferences will allow 5 international professionals to answer these questions and propose new business models.

• What economic models for mapping companies today?
Philippe Ligot – president, ATHEM (France)
László Bordos – 3D artist, artistic director and director, Bordos.ArtWorks (Hungary)

• Can video mapping find new economic models without a sponsor?
Carole Purnelle for the Lisbon Under Stars project – director and co-founder, Ocubo (Portugal)

• How to develop an artistic career and projects in a professional sector that depends on sponsors?
