It’s NAB time again. The big show in Las Vegas where sometimes exciting new gear is announced and sometimes not! You just never know. Blackmagic surprised us last year with their camera. We had a glimpse of the new Movi handheld gyro stabiliser a few days ago that I can’t wait to check out there. Honestly I don’t know what to expect or see.
I will be keeping this post updated when I see or hear about something new, but I won’t be providing full news coverage. There are loads of sites like Nofilmschool.com and newsshooter.com who will be doing a fine job on that!
Whilst at NAB I will be doing 4 shortish talks and 1 live broadcast. All the talks are free and on some interesting topics! Here is the timetable (am not sure where the locations of these actually are yet, but I am sure you can find them!)
Monday 1pm KESSLER/ ZACUTO booth: Keeping the passion alive…how to stay creative and not fall out of love with filming.
Monday 5pm KESSLER/ ZACUTO booth: A general Q&A session where I will answer all the questions I can in the allotted time! A chance to get advice, ask those burning questions and much more!
Tuesday 5PM MILLER TRIPODS stand: “How to make it overnight!” A tongue in cheek title for a talk Q&A about how I got to where I am today and how what I did can help you!
WEDNESDAY 1pm KESSLER/ ZACUTO booth: A general Q&A session where I will answer all the questions I can in the allotted time! A chance to get advice, ask those burning questions and much more!
So lots of nice talks. and if you see me do say hello…I don’t bite!
Whilst here I am also doing an epic timelapse/ real time film for The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. It’s got a high concept and I hope it works. It involves 7 DSLRs shooting timelapse and a Canon 1DC shooting 4K video. The film will be 4K, but I can’t say any more that that. You can catch a sneak glimpse of the set up below and some frames from my 7 day master frame shot on the Nikon D800! Also a little frame from the 1DC that I captured today which makes me chuckle!
Here is the first Vegas Timelpase I did two years ago at the MGM signature balcony
