This coming Thursday, we'll be chatting live with Benjamin Eckstein. He was one of the organizers of the All In Film charity fundraisers at the NAB conference and, he's part of a team who recently entered a “48 hour” film competition. If you've not heard of these, teams are formed and are given a theme. They then have 48 hours to write/film/edit a short movie and enter it in the contest. This one's theme was “Science Fiction”.

planet5D live chat with Benjamin Eckstein – Thursday May 27th 9PM EDT

Benjamin and I (and you!) will be chatting on the planet5D Live! page starting at 9pm EDT. And on UStream, you too can join in and ask questions in the chat window. You will need to register at UStream (their requirement not mine) in order to ask questions in the chat window… so you may want to do that early.
