Coverage of 2018 DCS Cinema Lighting Expo Now On-line


CML members may be interested in our coverage of the annual Digital Cinema Society exploration of Motion Picture Lighting and Grip Technology.  The event was held at the IATSE Local 80 stage in Burbank, CA on Saturday, February 24th.


In addition to presentations from most major vendors in the Industry, there is a practical demo on the beauty of hard light and some great words of wisdom from Cinematographer Michael Goi, ASC.  Also see this year’s DCS Service Award presented to Ron Dahlquist of DADCO/SunRay, and hear some of his remembrances from a 50+ year career in motion picture lighting.  Although it was a Lighting event, Panasonic was kind enough to help sponsor the event, so there is also an in-depth presentation on the new addition to the VariCam family, the EVA1.
