There's lots of high-tech film equipment up on the fourth floor rotunda today at "Media Day '10," which is showcasing media innovation and technology. Exhibits cover everything from university film programs to a screenwriters' group to other aspects of the "creative economy." As part of the event, a special screening is planned at the Egyptian Theater tonight at 7 of "After the Storm," an award-winning documentary from the Priddy Brothers described as "a celebration of perseverance and rebirth through the arts." The screening costs $10, or $5 for students; the exhibits in the Capitol are free for viewing from 8 to 4 today.
