2019 Cine Gear

Thursday, May 30 - Sunday, Jun. 2

Friday, May 31 from 12:00pm to 8:00pm
Saturday, June 1 from 10:00am to 5:00pm.

Local 600 will be hosting two panels at the 2019 Cine Gear Expo at the Studios at Paramount. 

The first panel is Landing the Gig & Building a Career and will take place Saturday, Jun. 1 from 10:15 to 11:30 am at the Sherry Lansing Theater. Every freelancer is a CEO. Discovering the best ways to market yourself and plot a career path while continuing to develop practical skills leads to vexing problems of balance, structuring a strategic vision or knowing what’s the best thing to do now and what comes next. Join ICG National President Steven Poster, ASC, a leading publicist, agent, camera operator and camera assistant in discussing what works and how to thrive as a freelancer. 

The second panel will be titled HDR On-Set: Are You Ready? and will take place Saturday, Jun. 1 from 2 to 3 pm at Screening Room #5. HDR is becoming the standard call for streaming distribution, and with 4K HDR sets predicted to dominate TV sales by 2020, HDR is destined to spread. How does capturing for both HDR and SDR impact the creative process? What does the shift from 6-stop to 14-stop dynamic range displays with an expanded color palette mean for preproduction planning and on-set practices? Hear from cinematographers, digital imaging technicians and colorists who have “been there, done that” about what’s changing and how they are meeting the challenges. Speakers will include Director of Photography Ken Glassing; Digital Imaging Technician Daniel Skinner with additional speakers to be announced. Local 600 Business Representative and Production Technology Specialist Michael Chambliss will be the moderator. For questions and more information, contact Rochelle Winters, 213-215-5020.
