The International Cinematographers Guild (ICG, IATSE Local 600) is co-producing a master class with the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) to be held at the RAI Convention Centre in Amsterdam in September.
A team of pioneering filmmakers, including Steven Poster, ASC, national president of the ICG, will shine a light on the latest digital filmmaking revolution, including faster frame rates. The panel, titled “Hyper-Reality: High-Res Digital Cameras Transform Filmmaking,” will be held Sept. 9 at 11 a.m. All the panelists are leaders in this continually changing field.
“We are entering a new era of high quality image capture, high dynamic range chips and high frame rate recording,” Poster noted. “As artists and storytellers it is up to us which of these hyper-real tools we want to use and when to use them.”
Joining Poster are Philippe Ros, AFC, French director of photography and digital imaging director (Oceans, Home, Kaamelott) and Dutch director of photography Lennert Hillege, NSC (Nova Zembla, Stricken). They will be moderated by IBC host and freelance journalist George Jarrett. A former editor of the IBC Daily, Jarrett now writes for TVB Europe magazine.
The panel will discuss how the new 4K and 5K digital cameras with ultra-sensitive sensors are making waves through feature film, television and commercial production.
