Founded two highly influential digital film showcases, Low Res and DFILM Digital Film Festival

  1. Low Res - started in 1994, Low Res was the first major showcase of digital filmmaking. Launched one of the first (if not the first) sites to show movies on the web. Screened first works by upcoming filmmakers like Sofia Coppola, Spike Jonze and more.

  2. In 1997, Low Res split into two festivals, DFILM and Resfest.

  3. DFILM - two 30-city worldwide tours, 3 continents. Sponsors included Apple, Macromedia, Stanford University, Universal, SKYY and more.

  4. As predicted by the festival, digital filmmaking - from desktop editing to computer animation to digital cameras and projectors - has become ubiquitous.
