Cinegear L.A. 2012

Out of all the trade shows where Kupo exhibits, Cinegear has to be one of my favorites. It is a two day event held this year, June 1st & 2nd, 2012, on the Paramount Pictures lot where we happened to be located on street called Greenwich Village. Being a New Yorker, it plays with your head to see reproductions of the neighborhoods that I grew up in. Cinegear features the latest top gear for cinematographers and video professionals. It is a smaller show than NAB, but being outside in the California sunshine playing with all the toys a DP dreams about, and talking with industry pros makes for a unique experience. If you would like more information about cinegear, just head over to If you’ll be in the L.A. area next year we welcome you to come buy and visit our booth. See you next year!

I would like to thank Mole-Richardson Co. for lending us some lights to dress up our stands as well as inviting us to their 85th Anniversary celebration. From being a pioneer in using incandescent lighting to replace the less efficient Carbon-Arc lights to Peter Mole’s Academy Awards, the first one for creating the Fresnel Spotlight, I wish Mole-Richardson Co. another 85 years of incredible lighting innovation that has lit up Hollywood and abroad since 1927.
