Creative Frame Rates: The Past, Present, and Future of Cinema

The Creative Frame Rate presentation contrasts immersive and hyper-real
120fps footage with more nuanced and artistic interpretations of reality. We
also explore the use of current technology to provide for the digital
projection of archive films and demonstrate how High Frame Rate (HFR)
capture and “temporal oversampling” provide for “resampling” at various
frame rates. These techniques offer tremendous possibilities for the return
of the creative frame rates of the silent era – and much more – to the artistic
palette of today’s cinematographer.

Jonathan Erland and the Pickfair Institute for Cinematic Studies

Band Pro will present a free 70mm screening of Baraka projected on Friday 6/5/2015 at 1:00 PM in the Sherry Lansing Theater.  A Q&A with Producer Mark Magidson will follow the film, moderated by Jon Fauer, ASC

Baraka-Man Dance

Shot in 25 countries on six continents, Baraka is a series of stunningly photographed scenes that capture what director Ron Fricke calls “a guided mediation on humanity.”  Critic Roger Ebert once wrote: “If man sends another Voyager to the distant stars and it can carry only one film on board, that film might be Baraka.”

Baraka-boy

Seating is extremely limited.  Early arrival is highly recommended.

Be sure to visit Band Pro at Cine Gear booth #70 outside on the NY streets at the Paramount Lot, and don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience Baraka its original 70mm glory.

Focus On Anamorphic Lenses

At Cine Gear Expo 2015 the Digital Cinema Society will explore Anamorphic cinematography in an attempt to understand why it has endured.  We will try to illustrate the differences between Anamorphic photography versus simply cropping to a wide screen aspect ratio.

It would be impossible to explain the beauty of Anamorphic photography without showing it, so besides assembling an expert panel, we aim to show a variety of sample footage.  Our discussion will then highlight the strengths, as well as the challenges, of Anamorphic production and post.

Panel:

-Jean-Marc Bouchut from Angenieux

-Thorsten Meywald from ARRI/Zeiss

-Les Zellen from Cooke

-Mathew Frazer from Panasonic Lumix

ACES for Hands-on Filmmakers 

After years of research and development, ACES 1.0 has arrived. It enables DPs and directors to preserve the on-set creative intent and carry it into dailies, editorial, VFX, the DI and on into archiving. It does this, in large part, by addressing many of the long-standing color management issues facing today’s productions.

Hear from hands-on filmmakers and technologists how ACES came into being, why it is important and how it impacts the creative and practical production process. Gain insight into how ACES can help streamline workflows, solve color reproduction issues on a wide range of displays, facilitate the integration of footage from multiple camera models and lenses, and provide a single color management standard.

PANELISTS:

Curtis Clark, ASC – director of photography; chairman, ASC Technology Committee; recipient, AMPAS Scientific and Technical Achievement Award (ASC-CDL); recipient, ASC Presidents Award

A fresh approach to 35mm optics for Cinéma Vérité style production

Motoyuki Ohtake, Distinguished Engineer, Opto Design Dept., Digital Imaging Group, Sony Corporation
Richard Schleuning, National Sales Manager, International Sales Americas, Carl Zeiss AG
Jon Fauer, Publisher, Editor of Film & Digital Times, Member of ICG, DGA and ASC.

Sony presents an original approach to 35mm optical systems design for still & motion picture shooting. With the DSLR revolution came a dramatic increase of still photography lenses for motion picture production use.  Widely established still photography lens systems designs are highly optimized for still shooting, but frequently lack important features for motion picture production.  With the E‑Mount, Sony launched a different approach to lens design that gives equal importance to motion picture production.

Jon Fauer, ASC, award-winning director and cinematographer, author of more than a dozen best-selling books on cinematography and digital imaging, will discuss with session presenters Motoyuki Ohtake of Sony, and Richard Schleuning of Carl Zeiss. Jon has taught at Dartmouth College, his alma mater, Columbia University, NYU, and many other places, including here at Cine Gear Expo.
