20th Annual Cine Gear Expo to be held at Paramount Studios
Acclaimed entertainment industry event Cine Gear Expo returns to the Paramount Studios in Hollywood from June 4-7, 2015. For 20 years, the Cine Gear Exhibition and Seminar Series has brought together artists and technicians alike to share the latest art and craft of the Hollywood industry.
Held on the landmark Paramount Studios Lot, attendees from around the world learn about the newest professional techniques and equipment and discuss the latest projects, product innovations, and industry news in a casual Hollywood-style atmosphere.
The 4-day event offers a vast array of activities starting on June 4 with the Film Competition Finalist Screenings of Student Shorts, Independent Shorts, and the new Commercial/Music Video competition. Winners in each category will take home generous prizes, including a Blackmagic URSA EF 4K Super 35 Camera at the awards presentation held Friday evening, June 5.
This year, Cine Gear will host 300 exhibits lining the studio back lot and filling three soundstages, including the industry’s most respected manufactures, rental houses, guilds, associations, trade journals, and other solutions companies—all standing by to share the latest tricks and technology. The Cine Gear exhibitions are open Friday, June 5 from noon to 8 p.m. and Saturday, June 6 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Filling those same days, there will be more than 25 complimentary seminars, panels, and screenings supported and organized by manufacturers and associations will be held on site. Attendees have the benefit of small sessions with industry experts from Sony, ARRI, and Canon, to revered Audio engineers and award-winning cinematographers.
For in-depth education, Cine Gear also offers its renowned Master Class Seminars on Sunday June 7. This mix of educational opportunities includes Lighting, Camera, and Camera Support Workshops. Tickets may be purchased online or at the Information Booth during show hours.
In addition, Cine Gear experience will feature three complimentary feature film screenings and expert panels. The audience will be treated to state-of-the-art projection systems in the Paramount and the Sherry Lansing Theaters, and a special 4K feature screening from Sony Electronics on Friday evening.
