AbelCine LA Open House - Oct 18th

Hey guys

Wanted to invite you all to join our 25 year celebration. AbelCine has grown up in the ever-evolving production industry, and this October will mark 25 years of supporting imagemakers with the tools of their craft. Join us in LA on Saturday, October 18 from 10am-5pm to celebrate this milestone with a special day filled with learning, prizes, and fun.

[b]Presentations, Demos, and Panels[/b}

Throughout the day, special guests and industry professionals will discuss their experiences working in the field with a range of production technologies. AbelCine specialists and manufacturer experts will be on hand to answer questions. Sony will be showing the FS7, Panasonic has the Varicam, we'll have a Canon Documentary panel, and much more. See a full list here - 25 Year Celebration LA – Schedule of Events


Silent Auction & Giveaways

Get a great deal on packages of overstock, demo, and pre-owned gear in our Silent Auction.

We will also hold multiple drawings throughout the day for prizes that have been generously donated by our manufacturers. Everyone will get a chance to win some great new gear from Canon, Freefly Systems, Panasonic, Sony and others. Prizes include a Sony A7S, MoVI M5, Miller's Original Fluid head, Canon VIXIA Minis, Teradek Clip, and much more.

Phantom Photo Booth

Have you ever wondered what you would look like in 4K slow motion? Guests can take their pick of fun props and strike their best poses, all while being filmed with the Phantom Flex4K. The footage will then be played back immediately on one of our 4K monitors – the best clip might even win a prize!

Food & Refreshments

A celebration isn’t a celebration without food and drink, so we’ll be serving lunch from 11am – 3pm along with a selection of beverages (to toast with, of course!)

We are excited for you to come celebrate with us, so make sure to RSVP today and stay tuned for more information!

Re: AbelCine LA Open House - Oct 18th

Here are our presentations! We're updating them all the time.


11 am Cinema Verité Shooting with the Sony FS7
Indoors, Theater 1 We will be showing off Sony’s new FS7 camera, designed to offer verité-style shooting with a unique ergonomic design. This shoulder-mounted camera features a 4K sensor, 4K XAVC recording, and a high-speed mode up to 120fps.

Presented by Sony

1pm Shooting Non-Scripted with Canon Cameras
Indoors,
Theater 1 Non-scripted & documentary production is taking off in a big way. With the internet and new distribution channels, non-scripted content is reaching more people in more forms than ever before. Canon cameras help empower filmmakers to make this possible, so join a panel of documentary and non-scripted filmmakers to discuss documentary production and the tools they use today.

Presenters: DP Nick Higgins, DP Shana Hagan, Producer Senain Kheshgi


1:30 pm 25 Years of Camera and Lens Advancement
Outdoors, Tent Since the founding of AbelCine in 1989, advancements in imaging technology have led to a vastly different landscape of choice for filmmakers in 2014. Additionally, during this time, the distribution opportunities for filmed content have expanded exponentially. This seminar will take a technology snapshot of then (1989) and now (2014) and ask a distinguished panel, representing filmmakers of various generations, how this quarter century of change has affected their art, craft and business. The panel will also speculate on where technology will drive the profession during the next 25 years.

Presenters: Suny Behar, Bill Bennet, Bob Primes, Rob Givens

2 pm Paranormal Activity 5: Shooting Low Light with the a7S
Indoors, Theater 1
Directory of Photography John Rutland discusses working with the Sony F5, FS700, and a7S on the latest film in the Paranormal Activity series. He will describe his process and and what it was like to use the cameras on this feature, including how he put the a7S’s low-light capabilities to the test.

Presenters: John Rutland

3 pm The VariCam Look (Now in 4K)
Indoors, Theater 1 The new Panasonic VariCam updates the look and functionality of the original for today’s modern filmmakers. The system features two different heads, the 35 and HS. Come check out some new footage from the cameras, screened in 4K, and stay for a Q&A session with Panasonic specialists afterwards.

Presented by Panasonic

3:30 pm Panel: Camera Movement – Gimbals, Drones, and You
Outdoors, Tent Over the last year, we’ve seen a wave of new stabilization devices and UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) that enable filmmakers to capture footage in unique new ways. These devices enable us, but also introduce their own set of challenges. Join industry professionals who have used these tools in the field for a discussion their advantages and the implications of these new ways to move the camera.

Presenters: Robert Rodriguez, More Coming

4 pm Panel: Arri AMIRA in the Field
Indoors, Theater 1 The Arri AMIRA is a versatile documentary-style camera that combines exceptional image quality with an ergonomic design, optimized for single-operator use and extended shoulder-mounted operation. Now that the camera has been in the field for a few months, we’ve gathered several users together to share their real-world experiences.

Presenters: DP Boyd Hobbs, DP Steve Garret, DP Shana Hagan
