Lighting Focussed Event
Mercury CX & Cinema EGM
Lighting Technology & Masterclass

ACS SA are co-hosting a lighting focused trade event being held at Picture Hire.

We have Tony Steele from Nanlite & Nanlux demonstrating and taking us through the latest LED technology for studio and on set lights.

Tony has a 30 year background in the film & photographic industry. Complimenting Tony,  Gaffer Graeme Shelton will discuss his experiences on set with some of these lights. Product specials will be available to attendees on the evening.

This will be followed by local Gold Sponsor, Picture Hire Australia, Dai Cookes and Dave Gregan presenting an evening of tips and tricks for difficult lighting situations Cinematographers may face whilst out shooting. A few of the lighting setups will include:
  • Lighting with strong midday sun
  • Lighting wine bottles
  • Minimising and exaggerating wrinkled/imperfect skin.
  • Plus much more
This is aimed at beginner to intermediate skill levels but could be useful for all Cinematographers.
We will also have on display the ARRI Alexa Mini LF and new Cooke Panchro/I Classic Full frame lenses.
When: Wednesday 14th 5.30pm for 6pm start
Where: Picture Hire Australia – 26 Clarke Street, Norwood
Bookings: Essential, numbers limited to 30.

Refreshments will be provided on the evening.
