We are headed to the 16th annual Cine Gear Expo in Los Angeles, California in just under a week and like NAB, we will be sharing out booth with Zacuto! Cine Gear Expo is considered one of the premiere industry events for film and video professionals worldwide. This year’s Expo offers something for everyone: exhibits, seminars, a film series competition, new product announcements, demonstrations, VIP awards ceremony, special events and more. One thing that sets this event apart from NAB is the size and scale. Unlike NAB, you will have a better chance at getting a look at everything in a more accessible and approachable environment.
This year, we will have with us many of our new products including the new CineDrive System so make sure to stop by and say hi! If you would like to have a look at some of the new products as well as a quick look at the CineDrive system, we have attached two videos below.
How to Setup a Basic 5-Axis Move – The Kessler CineDrive
Finding the latest and greatest gear is a plus; learning from professionals on how to make the most of it is mandatory. What good is acquiring all this stuff if you can’t put it to good use? When you’re not checking out the exhibits you need to take advantage of the classes and seminars taking place.
The big ones worth mentioning include an all-star line up of ASC cinematographers discussing the art and craft of cinematography based on their own experiences, a presentation by cinematographer David Leitner on shooting documentaries with the Sony FS100, FS700, F3 cameras, and a seminar on financing/producing/distribution- something all indie filmmakers should attend.
Also worth noting is the Cine Gear Film Series taking place May 31st. Not only will the filmmaking finalists screen their films on the Paramount Back Lot, they’re in competition for over $100,000 in prizes! The categories are student short film, independent short film, and indie feature film.
Cine Gear takes place at The Studios at Paramount in Hollywood. The Cine Gear Film Series will screen Thursday, May 31st 12pm-8:30pm with a reception on Friday, June 1st 8pm-10pm. Exhibition and seminars take place Friday, June 1st 3pm-9pm & Saturday, June 2nd 10am-5pm. Master classes will be held on June 3rd at the Mole Stage in Hollywood.
