Think the latest film technology was only for the mega-rich Hollywood studios? Not so fast! New innovations in film, social media, and scientific innovators  crossing-over to be artistically innovative as well.

Underkoffler developed that idea into a new system for editing film that’s the focus of his installation, Tamper.”
