[ngg src=”galleries” ids=”90″ display=”basic_thumbnail”]What a special night! Thank you to the amazing team at ZEISS for opening the doors to host us at their new ZEISS Cinema Lens Demo Center in Sherman Oaks, CA. Our members got to take a tour around the facility and spend some time looking at the amazing Cinema Lens Display as well as the prep floor where ZEISS’ world class lenses graced various third party cameras. We also got to see their 4K HDR theater, full editorial suite with DaVinci Resolve and Nuke software. After some networking and refreshments we settled in for panel where we got an inside look at the making of STUCCO, a thought-provoking short film produced in partnership with RED Digital Cinema and EFILM.
The panel was moderated by Snehal Patel, Director of Sales, America for ZEISS and included Joachim Zell, VP of Technology, EFILM/ Stucco Imaging Scientist; Barry Goch, Senior Finishing Artist, Foundation Post/Stucco Editor; and Dan Duran, Post Production & Workflow Specialist, RED Digital Cinema. The fascinating discussion explored the emotional and technical aspects of making a film with heavy practical and visual effects. It also addressed how to leverage RED DSMC2 with ZEISS lens metadata technology (eXtended Data) for a streamlined workflow from production to post.
After the panel we had a active Q&A session and ended the evening with our popular giveaway worth over $3,600! A big thank you to Snehal Patel and Katia Del Rosario and the entire ZEISS team for an amazing meeting!
