Panavision To Show 8K Large Format Presentation At SXSW

News Image
Panavision is to show the beauty of 8K large format when it displays a presentation at SXSW on 13 March. Attendees to the Vimeo Theater presentation are set to learn about the symbiotic relationship between full-frame imaging devices and large-format optics, and how these tools can help improve production value while remaining cost effective.

The session is to present clips that demonstrate the benefits of 8K capture and how ultra-high resolution equals more creative control.

Panavision's Dan Sasaki, a revered optical engineer who has developed and customized lenses for such films as Dunkirk, The Hateful Eight, and Saving Private Ryan, is set to lead the presentation. Joining him will be Panavision's Aaron Kroger, director of digital camera systems, and Light Iron Senior Colorist Sean Dunckley. 

Mr Sasaki has developed many of Panavision’s popular anamorphic and large-format lenses. Since joining the company in 1986, he has designed and customized optics for many award-winning cinematographers, including Steve Yedlin, ASC (Star Wars: The Last Jedi); Haris Zambarloukos, BSC, GSC (Murder on the Orient Express); and Rachel Morrison, ASC (Black Panther), to name just a few.

Mr Kroger began his career at Light Iron, where he was instrumental in designing the facility's Outpost mobile post lab as well as training camera crews how to use them on-set. He supported Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, several seasons of Criminal Minds, 3D features such as The Amazing Spider-Man, and dozens of movies. After Light Iron was acquired by Panavision, Kroger joined the team that created the Millennium DXL camera and has been instrumental in demonstrating the new camera to cinematographers, directors, and studio executives.

Mr Dunckley has collaborated with some of the industry's top talent working on features, commercials, and television shows. His credits include Dan Fogelman's upcoming feature Life Itself, past SXSW selections Patti Cake$, Lucky, and Kelly & Cal, and this year's Oscar-nominated short Heroin(e). He has also colored music videos for John Mellencamp, Dr. John, and Beyoncé.

Panavision has recently introduced the Millennium DXL2, a next-generation, large-format 8K camera that is at the core of a complete imaging ecosystem designed from filmmakers' perspectives. The DXL2 seamlessly incorporates Panavision's unmatched optics and camera architecture, the RED MONSTRO 8K VV sensor, and Light Iron Color 2 science (LiColor2).
