On Monday evening I had the pleasure of attending the Fantastic Fest filmmakers spotlight.  For those of you who don’t know what Fantastic Fest is, let me offer a quick description.  Fantastic Fest is the largest “genre film” festival in the United States and it’s the creation of Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas.  Dell and our graphics partner AMD sponsored the “Next Wave” competition for budding new directors in genre filmmaking.  Eight directors from around the globe participated in the competition.  Matt Johnson from Toronto, Canada and director of the film “The Dirties,” won the award for best picture.  As part of the award, he will be given a Dell Precision M6800 Covet mobile workstation with AMD’s FirePro™ M6100 graphics, designed and certified for professional high-end film production and editing, so Matt can use a filmmaking tool that is as cutting edge as the films he brings to life.
