News Image
Almost 16,000 visitors attended this year's Cine Gear Expo in Los Angeles, where members of the motion picture, video and new media community gather to see the latest industry technology and trends.

Panavision and Light Iron unveiled the new Millennium DXL Camera (DXL) which has been developed through contribution of the three companies; this includes large format optics and modular accessories from Panavision, an 8K sensor from RED Digital Cinema and new color science and optimized workflow from Light Iron. The system is expected to be available from Panavision in early 2017.

The 2016 Special Screenings included an exclusive screening of Woody Allen's feature, Cafe Society and a subsequent interview by Jon Fauer, ASC, with the film's DP, three-time Academy Award-winner Vittorio Storaro ASC, AIC. Later that evening, the cinematographer was honoured with Cine Gear's Cinematography Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Cine Gear Expo Film Series' all-star panel of experts included Amy Vincent, ASC, Martina Buckley, and Bruce Logan, ASC, who judged the Student Short Film, Independent Short Film, and Commercial and Music Video competitions. Prizes were donated by sponsors including 360 Designs, Mole-Richardson, Cush Light, On Set Headsets, G-Technology, LaCie, Script E Systems, SKB, Dinkum Systems, AutoDCP, Lifepower, and Blackmagic Design who contributed three Ursa Mini 4.6K cameras to the winners.

The Student Short Film winner, [solitary], from American Film Institute was directed and written by Derek J. Pastuszek, produced by Cedric Gamelin and Fabrizio Muscia, and Shadi Chaaban was director of photography. The prizewinner in the Independent Short Film category was Kingsland by director/cinematographer Jake Gabbay, and produced by Tom Gabbay and Bill Furman. My Friend Sin by director/cinematographer Mike Sanchez, and producer Suzi Sanchez took home the prize in the Commercial and Music Video category.

Elsewhere, this year the Best Outdoor Exhibit Design award went to DJI for their stage show that featured a reeling rooftop rumble, ready to be captured by their gimbal systems. The Best Indoor Booth went to Colt LED for their display of colourful DMXable tubular LED lights. VER received an Honorable Mention for their ever-changing Enhanced Environment.

Next year Cine Gear Expo LA is slated to return to Paramount Studios on June 01 to 04, 2017.
