NEW Announcement (11/7/10): We are honored to present a special Q&A with Jon Landau and Variety Associate Editor David Cohen at Future of Film Summit on Tuesday.
Landau (Producer), an Academy Award winner, has repeatedly demonstrated an ability to oversee and deliver major motion pictures. In 2009, Landau and James Cameron produced the science fiction blockbuster, Avatar, which has since become the highest-grossing film of all time, surpassing Titanic (which Landau also produced), which had previously held that position.
The combination of Landau’s thorough understanding of the most complex state-of-the-art visual effects technologies, his ability to work hand-in-hand with the highest caliber creative talent, and his motivational ability with crews of all sizes has enabled him to play a significant role in numerous major motion pictures.
As a part of Lightstorm Entertainment, Inc., Landau, along with director James Cameron, has been developing digital production tools that will enable filming and mass digital distribution of 3-D films. Landau is also working in close collaboration with Microsoft and its partners to streamline the production and visual effect process through the use of cutting-edge "Virtual Production" technologies.

We hope to see you on Tuesday for this exclusive film industry event!
