Postwrap: ARRI Alexa Mini LF Event

Thank you to all who attended the Get Up Close event with the red-hot Alexa Mini LF. Between 3 large format sensors, 4 sets of large format glass and a healthy amount of beer, this hands on event brought students, novices and seasoned practitioners together to all play with the newest innovation from ARRI, followed by an intensive presentation from ARRI Australia's Sean Dooley on the intricacies of large format, what makes the Mini unique, and the benefits of ARRI's signature primes.

Massive thanks are in order to Tim Jordin and the rest of the Lemac crew, and Sean Dooley from ARRI Australia, for providing the cameras, lenses and support, as well as Glenn Jones and Shed Light for providing grip and lighting. Images are courtesy of Mark Broadbent, and highlights video courtesy of Lucas Tomoana, which are all available at our Facebook page - link at the bottom of the newsletter. Finally, none of this would be possible without Luke Nixon and Soapbox Beer, without which the event would not be nearly as fun!
