The Ethics of Accuracy

Unknown Premiere



Our panels will tackle the representation of hacker culture, tools, and techniques in film. We aim to lower the bar to embracing authenticity on screen by exploring ways various techniques can be effectively, affordably, and consistently applied on set. Then, we'll have a frank discussion about the ethical implications of that level of accuracy. These conversations will offer both a foothold for industry professionals digging into this for the first time, and new techniques and inspiration for those who are already familiar. Making a commitment to authenticity grounds your film in reality, helps your actors stay connected to the story, and keeps your audience engaged, but when is getting it right going too far? Our panelists will weigh in on where the line is between accuracy on film and shooting a training manual for miscreants.
