Kodak Goes Behind-the-Scenes With Acclaimed Cinematographers at Cine Gear Expo; Eric Alan Edwards, Giles Nuttgens and Rachel Morrison Headline Panels LOS ANGELES, May 29, 2013 — Kodak will host two discussions with acclaimed cinematographers at this year’s Cine Gear Expo on the Paramount Lot in Los Angeles. On Friday, May 31, at 5:15 p.m., Kodak will sit down with award-winning cinematographer Giles Nuttgens, BSC for a conversation in the Paramount Theater. On Saturday, June 1, at 11:45 a.m., the “Sundance in Summer” panel will feature Eric Alan Edwards (Lovelace) and Rachel Morrison (Fruitvale Station) in The Sherry Lansing Theater. In a candid conversation, Nuttgens will reveal the thinking behind his extensive body of work -- including the imagery, technology, career choices, and his collaborations. The seminar will offer a glimpse into the mind of one of today's more innovative artists. Nuttgens shot the recently released What Maisie Knew with the directing team Scott McGehee and David Siegel, and Midnight’s Children, based on the best-selling Salman Rushdie novel. Nuttgens’ extensive feature resume also includes Mehta’s elemental trilogy Fire, Earth and Water, which received a 2007 Oscar® nomination for Best Foreign Language Film and earned Nuttgens the 2006 GENIE Award for Best Cinematography. Nuttgens first worked with McGehee and Siegel on The Deep End, a film which earned him the 2001 Sundance Film Festival Award for Best Cinematography, and a nomination in the same category at the 2002 Independent Spirit Awards. His next films include the upcoming features Young Ones and God Help the Girl. Both Edwards and Morrison recently had movies that were stand outs at the Sundance Film Festival. This panel conversation will delve into their creative and budgetary considerations made prior to and during production. The cinematographers will also give the audience behind-the-scenes insight on the collaborations with their directors – Ryan Coogler who took his first turn at the helm on Fruitvale Station; and the dual visionary team on Lovelace comprised of Oscar®-winning director Rob Epstein and Emmy®-nominated Jeffrey Friedman, both with documentary backgrounds. Edwards’ film Lovelace is the story of adult film legend Linda Lovelace, who starred in the 1972 film Deep Throat. The film will hit cinema screens in August. Edwards received an Indie Spirit Award nomination for My Own Private Idaho, and has an eclectic list of credits including Gus Van Sant’s Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up, David Dobkin’s The Change-Up, and the upcoming Delivery Man from director Ken Scott. Morrison lensed Fruitvale Station, which was the winner of both the Audience Award and Grand Jury Prize at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Based on real events, the film follows Oscar Grant on the final day of 2008, and his untimely death New Year’s Day at the hands of a transit police officer in Oakland, Calif. The film will be released by The Weinstein Co. on July 26. Morrison’s credits include Palo Alto, CA; and the upcoming thriller The Harvest, among others. Morrison will receive the Kodak Vision Award at the 2013 Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards® on June 12. The panel is free with admission to Cine Gear Expo.

Company to Showcase New Offerings and Equipment Sales at Cine Gear Expo Bexel Cine Gear Expo Booth # 98C (BURBANK, CA) - Bexel, a unit of the Vitec Group's Services Division and a leading worldwide provider of broadcast services and solutions, has expanded its selection of camera solutions with the purchase of four Sony F55 cameras, a compatible selection of PL-mount Fujinon Cabrio Lenses, as well as 10 Canon EOS C300 cameras. The new camera packages will be on display at Cine Gear Expo (Booth #98C), which runs May 31 through June 1 in Los Angeles. "The investment in these acquisition formats expands the broad base of Bexel's available camera packages, and ramps up our turnkey solutions featuring leading products from the chief manufacturers in the industry," says Bexel CTO Tom Dickinson. "We have been following the market quite closely, as we always do at Bexel, and know that this is the right time to jump into an extended offering that includes a series of PL-mount cameras." The Sony F55 cameras will play a crucial role in Bexel's new 4K solutions, and their capabilities for providing camera packages that augment any major sporting event or live production, while also providing clients with an outstanding HD source for various broadcast television projects and other high-end programs. Bexel will offer a full suite of accessories with the camera, including the AXS-R5 RAW recorder, which enables incredibly precise 16-bit linear RAW in both 2K and 4K. To complement their new Sony F55 cameras, Bexel has acquired eight Fujinon PL 19-90mm Cabrio lenses (ZK4.7x19) and PL 85-300mm Cabrio lenses (ZK3.5x85). These premier PL-mount lenses provide a film-like look, and are easily scalable to enable full 4K production. The Cabrio lenses feature a detachable servo drive unit, making it suitable for use as a standard PL lens or an ENG-style lens. Bexel anticipates that the ability to extract sharp, crisp, high-resolution 4K images from a zoom will be especially desirable for live sports broadcasts. The Canon EOS C300 with the EF-mount provides users with the ability to give a project a variety of looks, as it delivers an effective and cost efficient cinema-style look that is ideal for reality programming, field acquisition, and the enhancing of high-end video production. The Canon's Super 35mm CMOS Sensor, DIGIC DV III Image Processor and XF Codec augment reality show productions at a very cost effective price point. Dickinson adds, "We're very pleased to be expanding the range of our camera lines. The Sony F55 is going to give our clients great shots that look like film, and the ability to be more creative. And on the 4K side of the spectrum, particularly when paired with the Fujinon PL Cabrio lenses, the F55 provides a larger image for 4K production. We also have a whole range of customers who will benefit from the flexibility and affordability the EF-mount Canon EOS C300s offer in augmenting a variety of video productions." Also at Cine Gear, Bexel's Technical Sales & Solutions division (Bexel TSS) will be promoting its portfolio of new and pre-owned gear. Bexel TSS is the leading dealer of professional broadcast equipment sales, boasting a multi-million dollar standing inventory of the latest audio, video and fiber equipment.
