Looking back on the BSC Expo 2020

BSC Expo

January 31 was the fateful date of Brexit and it fell smack in the middle of the BSC Expo 2020. Thankfully, our British friends had gratified us with a “preview” opening on Thursday the 30th from 16:00 to 19:00. Three “fluid” hours reserved for BSC members and VIPs to be able to walk around the expo, discuss with the exhibitors, and meet a few colleagues.

A Full Frame and Anamorphic IBC for Angénieux


At IBC this year, Angenieux had shown the New Optimo Ultra 12x Multi Format lens and the already popular Type EZ series, both for S35 & Full Frame cameras. After the success of the Optimo 44-440 A2S lens, Angénieux had also presented, for the first time in Europe, the Optimo 42-420 A2S Long Range Anamorphic lens for the High End Production market.

BSC Expo

If Britain chose the Brexit direction, Hollywood preferred to choose the one that leads to studios facilities in the London area.

Oslo Digital Cinema Conference - Workshop
by Jean-Jacques Bouhon

Technical shows and exhibits

On the 5th and 6th of May, Matthieu Poirot-Delpeche and I have attended this conference cycle organised by Imago and the Norwegian Film Institute. Being quite busy last month, I couldn’t find the time to write down a summary. Here it is at last.
We have to start by complementing the extreme quality of the cycle, which brought together over 200 European Directors of Photography. Each intervention led to questions and answers, allowing both the audience and the lecturers to specify number of points.

Technical shows and exhibits

No need, for once, to rush up the steps of the Cannes Festival Palais, dressed like a penguin and adjusting one’s bow tie, in order to attend the 3rd edition of the IDIFF (International Digital Film Forum) which took place from the 2nd to the 4th of February, 2005. All that was needed was an interest, however small, in anything that borders on what has come to be known as « digital cinema ». For this is what IDIFF is about.
