I recently returned from IBC, the best and biggest European trade show for cinema and television tools, held in the wonderful city of Amsterdam.
There were many interesting technical topics and products showcased there, and I will return to those in future posts.
As always, IBC was also the occasion to meet and speak with many people from the production and post-production industry, both in the technical conferences and on the show floor. And I thought it would be good to offer a post that, for once, highlights the people rather than the products.
It is in this spirit that I post a photo album featuring some of the portraits I've taken at IBC over the past five years. They include friends and colleagues, movers and shakers, industry captains and foot soldiers, cinematographers and post-producers, filmmakers and manufacturers, and some of the people who took time to explain movie technology to me.
The images are intentionally jumbled chronologically, to render a blended view of the recent past. Of course, there are many important people who I don't have photos of -- you know who you are. My apologies, I will try to make up for this shortcoming next year :)
