A recognized name in professional optics, ZEISS will display its hallmark line of motion picture lenses including Supreme Prime, Supreme Prime Radiance, Cinema Zoom lenses and more in Booth 433. Attendees will have the opportunity to pose questions about the award-winning glass which was used on several of the films screening at the conference. Visitors can talk one on one with the ZEISS Cinema team, including renowned lens experts Snehel Patel, Anna Schmidt and David Warner. A top authority on the growing field of lens metadata, Patel will discuss the current state of the art and hint at what’s upcoming from ZEISS to enhance workflow from acquisition through post and effects work.

On Sunday afternoon at 4:00 pm attendees are invited to join Snehel Patel and select SXSW filmmakers for the annual ZEISS Talking Cinematography panel, live this year. Guest cinematographers and their selected films include: Greta Zozula for Soft & Quiet, Dustin Supencheck for Hypochondriac, Rachel Clark for Pirates, and more. Panelists will be ready to candidly discuss their SXSW official film selections in terms of their work process and how they realized their vision. Audience members are encouraged to join in with questions for the panelists. https://schedule.sxsw.com/2022/events/PP119328
