It’s that time of the year again, and now COVID will not stop it: the countdown is on for opening day of Cine Gear Expo Atlanta 2022, which will happen at Trilith Studios, starting October 7th.
Ready to roll at Trilith Studios, Cine Gear Expo Atlanta 2022 is a free event, but guests must register to attend any special event, screening or seminar. Those registering online are immediately participating in one more thing: Blackmagic Design is sponsoring a free Registration Raffle which will give-away two licenses for DaVinci Resolve Studio (MSRP $295) and more.
With the countdown now on for opening day of Cine Gear Expo Atlanta 2022 (or Cine Gear Atlanta as some will call it), the organizers say that filmmakers, broadcasters and content creators alike are invited to see, learn, and mingle among the rows of worldwide motion picture services and technology exhibits from Anton Bauer to Zeiss on the 700-acre grounds of the region’s top studio, the beautiful Trilith Studios in Fayetteville GA.
