I recently attended IBC, the best and biggest European trade show for cinema and television tools, held in the wonderful city of Amsterdam.
In my next post I will address some of the technological topics and products I saw there, but first I wanted to share a photo album of my visit, featuring some of the people I met and conferences I attended.
Several of the photos feature my friend and colleague Stephen Pizzello, with whom I visited some of the booths. I also spent time with ASC president Kees van Oostrum, vice-president Bill Bennett, and saw member Florian Ballhaus, along with many ASC associate members. Note that I have also included a few photos from previous years in the mix...
The highlight for many at IBC was the screening of an excerpt of Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk by Ang Lee with cinematography by John Toll, ASC, who unfortunately couldn't come to Amsterdam. The complex projection system used was overseen by cinema technologist Ben Gervais.
