Cine Gear Expo 2017: What you missed and why you should go next year!
Every Summer in sunny Los Angeles, CA, the Cine Gear Expo is held for professionals in the film industry to get their hands on the latest gear and see the future of media and technology right before them. If you plan on pursuing any of the various roles on a film set, then you need to make your way down for this four day show in Hollywood.
Reasons you need to be there in 2018: for one its held at the beautiful Paramount Studios Lots, of course! Who wouldn't want to have that as motivation!? It definitely opened our eyes and inspired us to take on bigger sets and think "Paramount like" at least for that entire day.
Second, Cine Gear features over 300 exhibits, new product and service introductions, complimentary seminars, awards ceremony and special screenings in state of the art theaters.
Some of the companies at this year's Expo:
-Int'l Cinematographers Guild
-The Rag Place Inc.
-Warner Bros Studio Facilities
-Manfrotto Distribution Inc.
-Matthews Studio Equipment
Just to name a few....
If you plan ahead this year, you can enter into the film contest and get a shot at being a finalist at Cine Gear Expo 2018, which would connect you with some of the top professionals in the industry!
It is also a great place to take it all in, sit back and learn. The last day is filled with Master Classes for those who want to soak up all the education they can from the best industry leaders and have the opportunity to network with peers within a studio environment. You never know who you may bump into!
