Webinar: Mike Keesling

May 17, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm UTC-5

Mike Keesling

Tuesday, May 17th, 8:00 pm via Zoom

Join us for a webinar led by Richard Vallon. Our guest via Zoom will be Mike Keesling, Academy award winner for his various technical efforts. Mike will discuss, among other things, his inventions the Image Shaker and the Squishy lens.

When an American spy is handed a drink with a Mickey Finn in it by a gorgeous female Russian spy, the squishy lens will distort the image and let you see his spinning blurry world moments before he blacks out. The image shaker is a novel prismatic way to introduce a violent shaking to a film scene without shaking the camera (or the actors). It is useful for those times someone is pushing the Starship Enterprise to go too fast.
