Adam Greenberg, ASC
Greenberg was born in Poland and grew up in Russia and Israel. As a youngster, he took up still photography. He got his first job at 17, working in a motion picture laboratory processing black-and-white film.
Greenberg went on to shoot his first feature in 1962. Through the 1960s and early ’70s, Greenberg was director of photography on documentaries and features, mainly produced in Israel. By the mid-1970s, he primarily was working on features in Europe and South Africa. Some, including The Big Red One (starring Lee Marvin), were filmed for American producers. Three of his films from that period earned Oscar nominations for Best Foreign Language Film: I Love You Rosa, Operation Thunderbolt and The House on Chelouche Street.
In 1980, Greenberg moved to Los Angeles. He went on to shoot three high-grossing films: Three Men and a Baby, Ghost and Terminator 2: Judgment Day. The latter earned an Oscar®, ASC and BSC nominations. He worked on nearly 30 features during his career, including La Bamba, Turner & Hooch, Alien Nation, First Knight, Sphere, Rush Hour and Snakes on a Plane, among others.
Technical Lifetime Achievement Award
The Cine Gear Expo 2014 Technical Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to Mr. Andres Valles and Mr. Alfredo Valles, in recognition of the significant contributions Servicevision has made to advancing the art and craft of film making.
Andres and Alfredo Valles biography
Andres and Alfredo Valles, both brothers born in Barcelona, Spain, come from a family with long industrial experience. Since the very beginning, over 30 years ago and together with their wives Mª Angeles Saez and Mª Angeles Casal, who have always been working with them developing their business and projects, have been very concerned providing the Spanish cinema with the latest technology and therefore decided to create an equipment rental company and film services called Servicevision in representation of their ideas.
At the same time , they realize that the film industry all over the world have the need of new film equipment reaching two fundamental premises: been simple but using the most advanced technology providing the best performance for shooting anywhere, and above all, been able to do it under extreme weather conditions and at any field ( mountains, desserts, beaches…)
That’s when they began to develop the product range Scorpio. The first equipment was a tubular aluminum crane and a three axes digital remote head, named now the Classic, still been used today in large international productions. After that, they start developing which became the pearl of Scorpio products: the Scorpio Stabilized Head, used in the main film productions around the world for the last 10 years due to its high level of stabilization together with its functionality. Following this there are a range of telescopic cranes, Stabilized Ball Head for helicopters, lens control and the car crane named Scorpio Arm, always SCORPIO in reference to their zodiac sign.
One of the first products developed 30 years ago, before the robotic, were macro lenses still working today in rental houses from Los Angeles and London. Seven years ago they’ve created a new optical department with engineers and physics to develop its new product: Scorpiolens Anamorphic 2x. It is a new concept of anamorphic lenses to offer the best anamorphic quality reducing weight, size and aberrations. With this new project, the Valles´s brothers are willing to offer to the film industry a new tool to be able to enrich the diversity that characterizes the cinematographic world.
Twelve years ago, they opened a company in Los Angeles named Servicevision USA with the idea to provide local service to local productions, school for Scorpio users, and service to all clients of Scorpio in that part of the world. With this company, Servicevision can offer 24hours services to their customers with the best technicians without interruption.
Once again the mentality of the brothers and their wives has been inculcated to the more than 60 workers that Servicevision worldwide has, to offer to the image professionals more tools to develop their art without limitations.
The Awards ceremony is part of the Awards Party at the Paramount Theater.
