On Jan 12th and 13th, Eye Lite and TV Connections, rental companies in Belgium hold their Event Action 18, for the 5th time.
This is a unique opportunity in Belgium for Cinematographers, gaffers, grip and camera technicians to meet manufacturers and be introduced to new equipment, like the Cooke S7i, RED Monstro, Sony Venice, the new camera range from Canon & Panasonic, led lighting from Avalon, LC, DMG, Exalux, Kinoflo or Digital Sputnik, the drones and stabilized systems from ACS and Access Motion or Kopterman. Plenty of new toys that gathered more than 500 visitors. Product specialists were presenting workshops and one of these was dedicated to ECO Responsability and New technologies in film making by the funds Screen Brussels and VAF.
On the Saturday morning, the Event hosted the Annual General Assembly of the Belgian Society of Cinematographers(SBC). More than 35 cinematographers came. Important meeting because it was meant to vote the admission of 5 new members (bringing the new total of 67) and to renew the administration board and the President: Willy Stassen was stepping out after 10 years of dedication to the association. SBC decided for co-presidency, reason was for more efficiency with the 2 languages in Belgium: Lou Berghmans and Louis Philippe Capelle are stepping in.
The new board decided to start working immediately. We wish them good luck.
