Special effects without computers

February 02, 2007|By Nick Madigan | Nick Madigan,Sun Reporter

Eric Dyer, a 35-year-old Baltimore filmmaker, probably does not see himself as revolutionary.

But in a world dominated by computers and digitized special effects, Dyer's championing of ages-old techniques to tell stories in new, untried ways has propelled him into the ranks of the truly avant-garde, so much so that the likes of Robert Redford, at the recent Sundance Film Festival, have stood up and taken notice.

If you go Eric Dyer's UMBC class will collaborate with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra on Visual Symphony during a family concert at 2 p.m. Sunday at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. $12-$20. 410-783-8000 or baltimoresymphony.org.
